As out of character as it is for me to say this, in this case, the Craftsman tool is decidedly better than any other option I've seen. You do _not_ want to use an easy-out on this, the wedging force will be in the wrong direction and endanger your casting. About that - who put this bolt _in_? Was it done at a quickie-lube place or something? If so, I'd bet real money that they put it in with an impact wrench, which is extremely bad for not just sticking bolts, but also hard on the casting. If someone else put this in, maybe you could go in & explain _their_ problem to them and see how they fix it. Dave Hinz
