Default Chevy 10-Bolt Rearend Help

Was pulling the rearend apart on my '86 Chevy 1/2 ton when I ran into a big problem. The small bolt that holds the pin in the diff broke off when I was removing it. The worse part is that it is broke off down inside the hole. Like .250 inch down in. Is there any way to get this bolt out? Not sure if it could be drilled since it is so small. Any help would be greatly aperciated. Thanks.

use a pick they usually aren't in that tight, or a reverse drill bit and take your time. Snap-on makes a tool to do just this. I can't find the part #

Default common chevy problem

You can try to do as killer B said or if that does not work I have had to grind down the center pin (the one the bolt is holding) enough to release it from the small bolt and then you can grab the small one with pliers and spin it out. I generally replace the small pin everytime I am in my axle just to prevent this problem.
