I ran across another  broken pinion shaft lock bolt in a differential today,,,,,,the problem is that the pin still had some threads on it so it had to be screwed out,,,,you dont want to drill it and destroy the threads in the case or run it down in the pinion shaft,,,,,,so I drilled a hole through a 5/16" bolt, tightened it down to the broken pin and drilled it just enough for the bit to bite the broken pin and it all came out together when I backed the bolt out,,,,,,,

Great job. Having the drill enter the pin slightly off center probably forced the pin to rotate as the bolt was backed out, keeping it taunt on the drill bit.  If it was perfectly centered, it would just stay in the hole and spin off the end of the drill bit?? You could have re-inserted the drill bit with a dab of fast set epoxy to bind it up to the tip of the drill too!.....

that offset sure did the job,,,,,,but my plan was to drill a hole in the pin and use an easy out, but  I  just freestyled a hole through the bolt in my vice because I was too lazy to drill it exactly through the center in my drill press,,,,,,I think if you tapped that bolt for a like #8 screw then run the bolt down to the pin, and run that screw down  through the bolt to lock the bolt to the pin,,,it might just all come out together,,,,,that pin didnt come out too easily, since the threads were stretched when it broke......
and you dont get a straight shot to drill since that pin is down in the case and a drill cant get close to it,,,,,,I needed to take it apart to check the axles,,,,,,,if they are shiny like  a spark  plug socket they are good,,,,,,if you see stripes,,,,they are bad,,,,,,
