Double nut the stud and remove it.  If there are no threads left and the stud is broken, then you'll have to use a pair of vise grips.  If it's tight, then heat will have to be used.  Good luck.

Thanks Jerry.

So it is threaded in and not pressed in?  I was afraid it was a press in and figured replacement might be as for press in rocker studs.

It has threads left so I should be able to double nut it.

Yup, it has ordinary 5/16"-18 threads on the manifold end of the studs.
