techinspector1 The studs are machined on a taper to match the taper in the boss where they bolt up to provide an interference fit. Hold a big hammer on one side of the boss and smack the other side of the boss with another big hammer. This will usually free up the stud and it'll just drop out of the boss.

Just for explanation, the taper is different component to component and car to car and is based on "X" number of inches of taper per foot. ie: 1" per ft, 1 1/2" per ft., etc. Hot rodders who are unaware of this can mismatch components and create havoc.

ok drag link

Yes drag link, sounds good. Do you think it will be hard to put back on what do you think the torque is? Thanks. It does not sound as bab as I thought.

302 Z28 If your talking about the drag link it is not splined, but it's tapered. Undo the cotter pins, nuts and it should drop off with a little persuasion from a hammer. Do not beat on the treads though.
