SOURCE: SNAPPED WATER PUMP BOLTS
Unfortunately, I've had this exact same issue with my F-150 5.0L... The pump bolts go through the timing chain cover and into the block. However, if you're lucky, once you finally do get the timing cover off(which will have to be removed at this point), you might have enough bolt hanging out of the block to get a grip on and possibly back the rest of the way out. There is a penetrating spray on the market called PB Blaster that is the very best at freeing up seized bolts. Spray it down really good and give it a day or so to penetrate. Not too sure of what size of easy-out you'd need, but I ended up having to drill mine out and putting in helo-coils. It's a real pain, but aside from junking the block, it's about the only option available. One more thing...if you do get all of your bolts out, before trying to put them back in, make sure to take an air compressor and blow out all of the bolt holes as they tend to get a lot of corrosion inside that will, 99% of the time, cause even more snapped bolts when trying to reinstall your new water pump, as this is what happened to me. Hope this helps and from one guy who's had to deal with this headache to another getting ready to...good luck, and no matter what you might begin to think, a gallon of gas and a match are not a better way of dealing with it, though it will sound tempting. Try to have a nice day!

The best place to go would most likely be your local for dealership's parts and service dept. Granted, most auto parts stores tend to stock these bolts, but from time to time, I've found that they're not an exace match for the original factory equipment. You can usually rest assured that when you go to the dealership, you'll probably be getting bolts that came out of the same batch that was used to build these vehicles at the factor, ending the worry of wrong-sized bolts and cheap steel. Not only that, we're talking about a few bolts, so you shouldn't have to worry about it costing very much. Hope this proves to be useful and have a great night!
