    Yeah, EZ-Out and replacing it would be the best method.

    You could also simply JB Weld the hole shut. It should hold under the temp/pressure.

    uhm, tap it and get a new bleeder...

    is it a replaceable part, or does that bleeder go direct into the block?
    if you drill and tap makes sure you don't get metal in your motor...

    Get an easy out from sears, back it out and replace the bolt like everyone said, the easyout won't make really hardly any metal shavings. I guess you could do it with the car on, so the positive coolant pressure keeps crap out of the head?

    Do not do this or you will melt your coolant-less engine and/or possibly face. Jesus. :roll: Cooling jackets don't touch anything important and a few shavings won't destroy a water pump. Is it on the waterneck? 12mm nipple? They crack if you overtighten them. You can get some hondabond and a matching bolt to block it off completely until you get a new neck. If it broke going in then an easy out will do the trick, if it broke coming out them probably not.
