Default Clutch problem

Hey everyone, new here. Just joined because I cant find the answer or a similar incident anywhere.
I made a clutch holdback tool (long pipe with 2 small pipes coming off the side) because the clutch bold on my primary is on unbelievably tight.
Well, I planned to tighten it up and tap it with a hammer when the holdback tool cracked the housing. Im going to try and include pictures but Im not too sure how this all works. Just wondering if the whole thing is junk now or if its ok (obviously not ideal) but the bolt is still not loose. Iv put a tortchon it and everything.
But my main question is will the crack explode? If so then Ill just beat the shit out of this clutch to get the bolt off. If not ill try to salvage it.
