If you can braze, you can "create" new ears.

Also, there is a (I call it temporary) "fix" in Tech Guide #1 which involves 
a 2 1/4 inch muffler clamp along with a couple of eye bolts.  Picture it 
with the clamp around the exhaust log and the eyes on the clamp.  The "bolt" 
end of the eye bolts becomes your "replacement" studs.

Later, JR
