I only had two really stubborn studs on my motor in the end, where heating at the juncture didn't work. For those two i heat with the oxy/ace torch inside where the barrel sits. I actually had to let it sit over night to fully cool, then heat only the inside of the case, not stud, to try and get the case threads to expand faster than the steel stud. And it worked, of course it was a once shot deal to keep the stud from heating with the case, so i had to have someone else put constant rotational pressure on the stud while i heated the case. With the arc welder though, i have no idea. I'd think that since a mapp gas torch is a fairly cheap buy at home depot, that you'd just use that. Btw, none of my dilivar's broke, i think that happens when they've already worn off there protective coating as started corroding, which in that case mine weren't bad at all.
Edit: I just realized that one of the stubborn ones was a dilivar stud, oops.
