Calling all auto mechanics! I’m slooowly overhauling the cooling system on my '91 Ford F-150 and I broke a mounting bolt on the water pump. The pump has been removed but the stub of the bolt is stuck (rusted) in the timing chain cover. Any standard (or non-standard) methods for dealing with this?
The only thing I’ve tried so far is to put a ton of WD-40 on it and try to turn it with a pair of pliers. It sticks out about half an inch and I’ve got maybe eight to ten inches of clearance in front (where the fan and radiator used to sit) and plenty of room on the sides.
“If you had manifested fatigue upon noticing that you had been an ass, that would have been logical, that would have been rational; whereas it seems to me that to manifest surprise was to be again an ass.”
