I need to change the water pump in my 02 r/t.
Got all the bolts out except one, and it snapped .
Drilled it so I can put a die on it, and hopefully remove it.
My question is, do the bolts go through the timing cover into the block, of are they just attached to the timing cover?
Thanks in advance for your replies.

Which motor does your 02 R/T have?

For the 5.2/5.9, some bolts go into the block, yes. (IIRC, they all go INTO the block).

For older motors, some even went into the water jacket; because I detest Murphy, I'd put thread sealer on all the bolts anyway.
