Default Steering column to dash mount

Went to mount the column back in place today, one of the mounting studs stripped out. Are these studs welded in place from the factory?. A couple good whacks with a ball peen hammer wouldn't pop the stud. Is it a matter of cutting off the stud flush and drilling it out, or hopefully a simple solution. Thanks.

Larry...Are you talking about the bolts that mount the lower steering bracket?

Or the two studs on the brake pedal brace that hold the upper end of the column in place?

The studs are welded in. You'll have to cut them off and drill out to use a bolt.

Larry.
Can you run a die on the stud using a different thread pitch (say a Metric Thread so that you can then use a different nut to tighten it in place...you will be the only person that knows its two different size threads and nuts)!
Just an easy way to fix it.

I'm referring to the upper mount

Got it now Larry...Agree with the above recommendations....If you can not re-thread the stud(s), you will have to cut off and replace with bolts....Probably will have to use a Dremel tool with a cut-off wheel.

Tried this idea w/ 7mm. die nut. Not enough room to turn the die nut because of the contour of the dash. Dremel tool & cut off wheel did the trick. Thanks to all who replied.

Yep, unfortunately I had the same issue last fall on my 56 Chevy, one of the studs securing the steering column was broken off. Found out the other stud was welded in place, so I drilled the partial stud out and installed a new bolt in its place...

Glad to hear you got it repaired.
