Bolt Size & Thread????

Had a diff cover bolt break and need to know what size they are and the thread too...I have to try and drill out the rest of the bolt or maybe an EZ-Out will get it out...Thanks!

5/16x18. Reverse drill bits work great.

go for the ez-out. it should come out fairly easy since there is no longer any tension on the threads, meaning much less friction. in fact, you may be able to use a nail or a center punch to spin it out far enough to get some pliers or fingers on. good luck!

I met a wild-eyed spinster on the back of a bus
She asked if there was any part of her I'd like to touch
When I told her "Yer nuts!" she got mad at me
And lectured on female anatomy...

Thank you both for the info...The next time I change my diff oil I will try to get the broken bolt out and hopefully I will not damage the threads...Right now it is not leaking so we will see...Thanks again!
