What about one of those thingys from Sears for removing broken bolts?

I would change the oil afterwards just to make sure you got all the chips out.

I have heard guys inserting a lag bolt , get a good bite , then you can either spin it or pull it out. Use size needed for tube, I would guess a 1/4 or 5/16 bolt will grab the tube..

Re: broken dipstick tube in block

Dont know if its a good idea or not, but I used a standard screwdriver (just big enough to be tight in tube) and got it to spin. Once it started spinning it came right out. What ever you use, the metal was real soft, so be careful.
