So..head bolt broke in block..

So I continue on and remove the head.. Cause of frozen head bolt? Blown head gasket leaking coolant into cylinder bore and head bolt..add that to engine sitting in that state for who knows how long..end result rust!
So I'll have to drill the bolt out as it broke almost level with the block surface..
So should I drill and tap a 12mm??
Also both head gaskets were blown at exactly the same place on the gasket..I found this interesting..

Your heads sound like they need to be resurfaced also.

Might not cost too much, compared to broken bits, easy-outs and frustration.

Any reason why I can't just make the jump to 12x1mm? 11x1mm Pitch is VERY hard to find where I live...
