.....in retrospect, breaking the bolt was a blessing in disguise. The original bolts were not Grade 8 (I knew that), were 40 years old, and there is no way they could (in retrospect) withstand 75 foot pounds of torque, as I found out. Instead of torqueing the new Grade 8 bolts I tightened them equally to a point with which I am comfortable. I'll pour the coolant I removed (about 6 gallons) back into the radiator, and if I see any leaks I'll begin torqueing them, but only as far as it takes to stop the leaking.....that is, IF they leak.
