Help,PIA bolt! - November 9, 2010, 04:58 PM

The only thing thats keeping me from removing the baffle out my leo vince is this






screw is set up to where if I want to tighten the screw I can, but if I want to loosen the screw my flat head moves all around and doesn't lock into place.
Anyone know a certain bit I would need to remove this?

Just cut a dremel cut wheel and cut stright slit across to hold flat head bit.
or
Drill hole in center and use easy-out bit.
or
Drill hole in center and screw in a "reversed thread" screw (if you can find one)

What he said. I faced the same bolt one time and it was raised and I just cut across it with a hacksaw.

The bigger question is why are you removing your baffle? I have Tennitus and I can't help but to believe it's from endless years of baffelless exhausts.

Well you see, Norm, itís like thisÖA herd of buffalo can only move as fast as the slowest buffalo. And when the herd is hunted, it is the slowest and weakest ones at the back that are killed first. This natural selection is good for the herd as a whole, because the general speed and health of the whole group keeps improving by the regular killing of the weakest members. In much the same way, the human brain can only operate as fast as the slowest brain cells. Now, as we know, excessive intake of alcohol kills brain cells. But naturally, it attacks the slowest and weakest brain cells first. In this way, regular consumption of beer eliminates the weaker brain cells, making the brain a faster and more efficient machine. And that, Norm, is why you always feel smarter after a few beers.-Cliff Claven

You don't need a Dremel or to do all that extra work. That's called a one-way screw and it hadhas its own special remover that looks like an S with a cover on it. You can find these at your local Depot or hardware store. Ask for a one-way screw remover, probably size 10 or 12. I'd let you borrow mine but I doubt you want to drive 45 min to save a few bucks.

I always forget that not every one has a Dremel... to me its a basic necessity for any DIYer. I figure a trip to the garage, is easier then a trip to the store. I would take the trip to the local Depot and buy a Dremel... you will use it a million more times then the one-way screw remover. Unless you plan on disassembling public bathroom stalls in your spare time. I know the removal tool is way cheaper, but trust me, get the Dremel and don't look back. This lil screw is a good excuse to give you girl, or yourself, to by the Dremel

Agreed, I don't know what I'd do half the time if I didn't have my Dremel. But in this case, he's better off getting the remover for $10 and saving himself the hassle of potentially snapping the head off the bolt and then he's really gotta put some work in. Ask me how I know.
