I had an exhaust manifold bolt that broke. I used a starter hole, then left hand drill. The bolt did not come out, but this work allowed the use of an easy-out. The bolt came out with no damage to the threads.

Bolt broke off Inside Hole
I have a 3/8 bolt broken off inside the hole about a 1/3". This is the bolt that holds the alternator to the head. I suspect it's bottomed out. I've tried a left hand drill bit and a Craftsman Drill-Out and I am not removing any metal. I'd sure like to not have to pull the head to remove it.
I'm no drill bit guru but the bits seem to be sharp.
Any suggestions or help anyone can offer? Is it more than drill straight in to get the hole started or what?
