Thanks gsmith....I'm gonna' head out now to evaluate yesterday's catastrophe..

...anything requiring drilling, etc. will (more than likely) be turned over to a pro to handle "professionally"...for now, I want to see "what's left" to grab onto........

I'm a lowly engineer who's not had to fight such issues as this (never used an extraction tool in my life)....I'll not play around where I shouldn't be playing............

...I think I now have an ulcer from this.....

I would ask again, what would be the proper way of installing a brand new stud into this area (assuming the present broken stud can be extracted). It would seem that the new stud would have threading at both ends so how would one grab onto the nut-end to install/thread the engine casing side into the case WITHOUT damaging the bolt end threads of the stud? I know this seems quite simple to many of you out there but is there a space in the middle of the new stud to grab onto?

Well, goes....I'll be reporting back shortly....
