Also, from my experience, water pump, crank, any lower engine or "hard to reach" bolts will give you trouble.
If it's an iron block, you could just warm it up before you mess with it too.
Why not tap it? I've done it before with the same situation (for a DA integra knuckle arm bolt). I just went to harbor freight, got a tap and die set, used it, broke it, and returned it .
Welding a nut on there sounds terrible lol.
And you should never, ever be cranking so hard that you snap the bolt. Everytime I snapped one, I knew I should have backed off. All you need to do is break loose that first rusted thread. Sometimes tapping it with a hammer is all you need.
Theres still a decent amount of the bolt sticking out of the head so I'm going to try and use that to my advantage.
And dude, the crappy part is I wasn't even cranking that hard! No breaker bars, no impacts, etc. I was slowly working its way loose like the top one and then, snap Lol. If the easy out, and blow torch can't break it loose, then it was bound to snap anyways. It's just old and rusty.
