Left hand bit did nothing but drill the hole deeper.
I can use a larger ez out now, but as you can see it's getting me nowhere.

Unfortunately the hole is ever so slightly off center or I'd drill it out and rethread it, but am afraid that would ultimately ruin the bearing.
Am at a loss what to try next. This f*cker is in there good.
Do you have a dremel? I've been in this situation unfortunately (well, not on a crank, but a cylinder head). I had to use a hardened steel shank bit to grind the remaining metal to as close to the threads as possible, then I was was able to pick it out with a pic and some needle nose pliers. A quick tap to clean the threads. Requires a steady hand though; beers afterward.
