I appreciate all your help and ideas. However, I have 2 drill bits broke off in the bolt holes which no one addressed. How do I get broken bits out of a hole? they are tight, I cannot reach in a 5/16 hole with needle nose, nor can I weld anything to them, nor can I drill them out.

The only other problem at this point is the Gland Pack Nut for the drain pipe. I have heated it so much I believe I welded it to the threads and have broken it off so I cannot weld to it. I am going to try to drill it today with a 3/4" bit. I am sure this will destroy any threads left. Is there a tap this big? Is there an oversized Gland Pack Nut?

Bob, on the gland nut try heating it and then get an ice cube and put on it (good idea to wear welder gloves). The fast shrinkage will usually loosen them right up. Sometimes it's necessary to do it twice but I've never had it fail me on bolts and such. Mike

You might leave the gland nut alone. Drill out the tube through the nut and hardened gland. You could reinstall a new tube with adhesive silicone. It won't leak or come out easily.
If you do drill out the nut there are taps available (perfect threads are not that critical in this case) or you could use a heli-coil.
