(d) Removal. 1.  Using  stud  extractor,  back  studs  out  slowly  to  avoid  heating  and  possible  seizure. 2. When studs are broken off too short to use stud extractor, drill stud and extract with an easy out remover. 3. Short studs may also be removed by welding a bar or nut to stud and removing with a wrench. (e)  Replacement. 1.  Only  standard  studs  are  supplied  for  replacement  in  steel  or  cast  iron  castings. 2. Unless threads in casting are damaged beyond repair, use standard studs. 3. If threaded openings are damaged and retapping will not clean up threads, drill and tap  opening  in  casting  and  install  a  threaded  insert. NOTE Studs may have a coarse thread on one end and a fine thread on the other end. The coarse  threads  on  both  ends  are  used  in  particular  applications  and  normally  the  short threaded  end  is  in  the  aluminum  casting.  All  replacement  studs  have  a  special  coating and  must  have  a  small  amount  of  mica-base  antiseize  compound  (MIL-A-13881) applied  on  the  threads  before  the  studs  are  installed  in  casting.  Thread  replacement stud  into  opening  slowly  to  prevent  overheating.
