[DML] Water pump bolt broken

Well my water pump checked out at 31,000 miles.  I guess not bad for a 25
year old pump.  Anyway I managed to snap off the bottom center water pump
bolt even after heating it.  I removed the rear fascia, exhaust etc so I
could drill straight into it.   I used a 7/64 bit and tried to get it with
an easy-out but it snapped off inside of the bolt.   I guess I will have to
drill it out and tap it.  Any reccomendations on what size bit to use?  what
size tap?  Any other things I should know?
