If you have enough stud to grab:
Heat the block at the base of the stud with a torch until a little oil
placed on the block near the stud smokes.
Using several pairs of vice grips clamped as tight as you can, try to get it
to turn.

Chances of getting it out without damaging the threads, 50%.

Next move:  Ebay item 300185296773, 320201549301 or equivalent.
Chances of a random block off Ebay being good (cam bearing diameters in
spec, etc.), pretty good, but not 100%.
