broken rocker stud removal

hey everybody, i've got a small block chevy with a broken rocker arm stud. whats left of the stud is down inside the boss. how deep do the threads go down into the heads, and do they go straight down into the water jacket? as far as i know they are stock heads. i was told the best way is just to drill it out and retap the threads, rather than risking breaking the ez out in the bolt. does that sound right to you guys?

If they are stock, they are probably pressed in..but I may be wrong. If it were me, I wouldn't mess with it and take it to a machine shop so it's done right. I wouldn't want to mess with anything like that...but that's just me...

It cost's such a small amount to have a machine shop do the work it really isn't cost effective to hassle with it your self.
