Default Cam shaft bolt snapped

I was doing my head gasket, I put the block to tdc, and when I was trying to set the head to tdc, the can shaft bolt snapped off, does anyone have any idea on how to remove the rest of the bolt

how did that happen?

was it hard to turn the camshaft?

fat chance getting it out ,start looking for a used cam, cuz if you have to pay someone to take it out it will cost more than a used cam would.

^ Try this with a thin center punch and a hammer. If it doesn't budge, there are other methods like reverse thread tap, etc. But not sure how much space is in there. You might have to take the cam out.

Last time I had a bolt snap in something portable I took it to a local machinist and he only charged me like $20 to remove it. Might be worth taking out the cam and driving around to a couple machine shops and asking.

Thats what happens when you try to rotate an engine with an 8mm bolt.

This has happened to me a long time ago. Go buy an easy out kit and it'll come out easier then expected.

just a heads up, you can quote multiple people in 1 reply instead of making multiple.

pet peeve. and the head of the bolt may be 12mm but what size is the actual bolt?

if the plugs are out, he should be able to do it... breakover torque on a d16z6 should be less than the torque spec on that bolt

The spark plugs will keep it from turning easily?
