Broken nipple

Post by pelletouse » Sat Mar 09, 2019 9:53 am

Good morning guys
I'm after some advice or tips on how to take off half of the nipple that is still in the outboard hole.
I was trying to grease the steering nipple on my outboard mercury 30 hp, i couldnt see the grease going in so i try to loose the nipple off and without forcing the nipple just broke off with half of the nipple still in the thread.

Thanks in advance

Ditto, I've got busted nipples on my ride-on mower blade spindles, I was going to try to grind a slot in them with a Dremel for a screwdriver to fit, what's the proper tradie way?

Eazy-out
Pick up a set for about $15 from Bunnings

Busted nipples sound painful :D
