What model year is this? Ford added a reinforcement plate to the floorboards in early 90 to address this problem. Unfortunately, it only does a halfway decent job of stopping the problem. Mine failed when the captive nut broke loose from the reinforcement plate.

Adding a washer helps, but it doesn't stop the problem. The pan still flexes around the bolt, and the tear still gets bigger (as much from body flex as anything else).

Remove the seat, drill out the crack, weld it up. Add a reinforcement plate and washers to help distribute the load over the thin floor sheetmetal.
