C'mon, you can't just say that and not tell the story!
It's a painful memory. Was changing water pump and new bolt snapped while screwing it in. No I did not over torque it, I was using a properly set torque wrench, just damned unlucky.
Tried everything I could think of to get the stub out before I gave up and hauled it to a local race car fab shop that I have used for various things over the years. They drilled the broken bolt out, filled in the space with a welder and then re-drilled and tapped the hole.
Good as new now after a few years.
