I understand the centerpunch technique but it will just jam an aluminum bolt in worse. Use the smallest left hand drill bit from harbor freight to make your pilot hole. Aluminum cuts easy and then step up to larger bits. You aren’t necessarily trying to drill it out completely. If you go slow,I mean by hand slow, you will feel it release and walk out. PB blaster or marvel oil helps and a quick blast with a torch to the case around it. God sake man cover the transfers. You might have to step up until you are same diameter as the inside of threads. The remaining threads will just fall out. Whatever you do chase that when done.
