Thanks Zebedee & mark1305...
It had been red Loc tite'd in the bad head, so I put it in toaster oven at 300F, then used the 2 bolt trick. The stud came out no problem.
Now I'm waiting for the Loc Tite to set up in the new head, so I can reinstall & proceed towards a running bike..
I appreciate your input!
