The other thing I might try is drilling a very small hole into the broken off bolt (on the broken side) and after you get it smokin hot shoot it with WD 40 and it will cool that bolt causing it to contract quickly from the bracket. It works really well most of the time.
Truly appreciate the info. I will try that shortly!

So cannot find grade 8 bolts anywhere in town. Will a standard zinc bolt work until I can order better? Need the 110 up and running for work Monday.
