Default Timing belt tensioner bolt broke off into block

Bought the whole car for $500 with a blown HG. Was replacing the HG and the timing belt tensioner pulley bolt was stuck. It broke off in the engine block.
I'd drill it out, but I know I'll screw it up.
Anyone know a place near San Jose to get this fixed? I called a couple auto shops and they say they would screw it up too. Engine is in the back of my truck.

find a machine shop. doesn't even have to be an engine/auto machine shop. they should know what to do.

I'd do it for you but I'm kind of on the other side of the continent..

Drill a little pilot hole in the center about 1/4' in. Take a torx bit and gently tap into the hole and ease it out. Usually works Everytime for me. Good luck
