Question about Cars & Trucks
The pulley on the crankshaft is called a vibration damper or harmonic balancer. The inner hub is attached to the outer pulley by a section of rubber to damp out the vibrations of the crankshaft. If the rubber deteriorates, it can separate and allow the outer pulley section to move in or out. I suspect this is what happened and you need to replace the entire crankshaft pulley.

SOURCE: broken crankshaft pulley bolt on
The only possibility I can suggest is that which is called and 'Easyout.' These are available at parts stores and come (normally) with a sized drill and a special bit with left-hand threads.
First a hole is drilled with the provided drill bit, then the removal bit is screwed into the new hole and turned counter-clockwise which further inserts the removal bit and, if the removal bit does not snap, the broken threaded shank should back out.
I would suggest soaking the broken part with penetrating lubricant first and allowing it time to seep into the threads of the broken bolt.
