It's as you say, the crankcase stud that's visible when the cooler is removed and/or the valve covers are off. I can see the broken end still attached to the case when I peer in with a light. All of the other studs are intact.

Do I need to rebuild or just dissasemble the heads and cylinders and put new studs in? I will do both sides while I am at it. If can just pull the heads and cylinders then I'll leave the upper/intake side alone and just do the lower/exhaust since from what I've read it sounds like dilavar is the problem and as long as the intake studs are intact I can leave them alone.

The question I have for those of you who have met the same fate is what's the minimum work procedure to replace the studs? Do the heads need to be fully disassembled or just un bolted from the studs and lifted off? Then the cylinder? I know the max is a full rebuild.

Thanks guys.
