hey guys so long story short, got a low mileage used engine awhile back, went to change out the lift bolts few days ago, and the intake bolt is snapped in half at an angle...ugh. I really dont have the money to pay a shop to disassemble the head to get it out, and tried drilling and extracting the bolt but didnt work. Any tips or advice? Could i remove the lift OCV and slide the rocker shaft out of the engine on the battery side to get it out? Seems fine to me but if someone has a reason i shouldnt do that, let me know please.

There's no reason not to do it that way if you have enough room, if the cam is already out and the shaft is actually sliding out easily. Make sure that the broken piece is not sticking out, otherwise it will scratch all the rocker shaft bearing surfaces on the way out.
