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.
