Off with the head
While stripping the engine I discovered that the previous owner had snapped an exhaust stud - v.frustrating. In the past I have never had much luck with removing snapped studs using various methods and tools, so I decided to let a professional do it. A machine shop were able to machine the stud out for a few quid. It did mean removing the head though
