If you could post your caged nut removal process on Wiky article it would be a permanent solution that won't fade away on this thread.
Actually the trick to the header bolts is heat. I am going to write up a Basics on it and how to use the heat. I have asked Jon not to put my articles in the Wiki because I don't want them altered. Anyone is free to use all the info they want just don't copy and paste my article please.
