Stud

If the stud is broken flush with the head surface you need to use an easy out tool. If a stub is above thee head surface you could thread and double nut it for removal. If the 302 was built before 1990 the stud is pressed in, only 289 hi-perf heads had screw in studs.

Click on this:http://www.mre-books.com/interchange/interchange5.html at the bottom of the article you will see a Hi-Po head, notice the jam nut at the bottom of the stud? If no jam nut it's pressed in,to replace the stud with the head on the car may be a little tricky so the best option is remove the head and take it to a machine shop or buy a used head with the same code stamping which may be cheaper than the shop rate.Or maybe this would be a better option to pick up a power increase:http://craigzoom.com/index.php?query...craigslist.org GT40's with a fresh valve job for $330 is a pretty good deal.
