if the head turns and the shank doesnt then they are busted already, so get yourself some new ones and dont worry about it since your tossing the block. If you end up needing to get the shanks out, get a acetylene/O2 torch, soak the siezed shanks in penitrating oil (PB Blaster is the best ive used by far, should be at local hardware store) let them sit for a few minutes, soak em again and tap on them with a hammer lightly to help the oil get down into the siezed threads... the longer you let it soak the better.. overnight is ideal. Then heat the block around the stud with the torch beeing careful not to heat the stud itself directly. have someone with a pair of vicegrips try to work the stud back and fourth. if that doesnt get it out your pretty much screwed. and i know an acetylene/O2 torch isnt something everyone has just laying around but a propane torch will not provide enough heat to heat the block before is dissipates.

^^^ I think he is referring to the nuts on the studs turn off but the studs are seized in place. Sears or other store will have a stud extractor looks like this.


With one of this style you will be able to get far enough down on the stud to avoid damaging the threads of the stud. You can also take 2 or 3 nuts and put them all on the same stud and tightening them against one another (called a jam nut) which will allow you to use the nut towards the block to turn out the stud. You can install the stud in the new block the same way by using the out side nut. done like so http://books.google.com/books?id=Cjp...K__lMByl_QVADk They do not need to be seated against any thing(block) just tightened against them selves on the threads. hope one of us helped, as said lube and heat help a lot.

hmm, OK. I never seen the bolts that hes referring to, but apparantly they are not "bolts" but studs. and if so, what is he talking about when he says the heads turn? studs dont have heads. sounds like maybe this should be clarified. but if he gets it figured out then who cares, really.
