Broke the t-stat housing bolts off in water pump yesterday. Tried drilling ezout but did not work. Had to drill all the way out and of course it leaks now at the housing. Going to go ahead and replace the pump. Scared to death I am going to break bolts off in the block.

I do not see where I should use rtv along with the gasket supplied with the pump, does anyone have any opinions on that??

Thank yall for the replies. It was stationed in North Dakota for a few years so yea it did see some salt, now it is back home in South bama so no more of that. So just a little rtv to hold on gasket but not around entire perimeter of pump. And as far as breaking the bolts loose, use a socket and extension whether I need an extension or not and take it easy with it once it breaks. Wish I tried that with the t-stat housing bolts!!!!
