Are just the studs broken or the ears too? If only the studs then they can be ground flush and drilled out and replaced with nuts and bolts.

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

All four flange studs are broken on the pair of exhaust logs I have
for the 63'... any advice on the best way to do the job?..... particulars
on tools would be great! I already removed the manifolds from the car to
make the job easier... last time I did this (on the 65') I did it on the
car... the result was tons of time spent, a sloppy job, and a back sore
enough to send me to the emergency room!
