Now we're gonna repair a broken bolt in a 63 Cadillac water passage bypass to the housing. The '63 Cadillac is especially notorious for leaks on that fitting right there in the center where it plugs into the engine. But this one we need to replace the thermostat. And, in order to do that, we need to get the thermostat housing off. The first thing that happens when pulling that housing off, the bolt broke. So, we're gonna show you how to remove that broken bolt that's down in the hole and we're gonna show you how to carefully remove the other bolt in an attempt not to break it off. You'll have lots of opportunities as you work on old cars to deal with broken bolts, especially in water passages where they corrode in there.
