rockerbox studs

I need to change a few rocker box studs. Can this be done with a pair of mole grips and some heat ? is the stud that's in the rocker box a standard thread ? Can I get suitable studs at a hardware store, or need to get it from Triumph parts ( 14-1401)

Dave,

The studs have UNF threads and nuts and UNC threads into the castings.

Put 2 nuts on the stud and tighten them together, then unscrew the stud using the nut nearest the rockerbox.

Soak them with WD40 for a while before you start and, yes, a little heat wouldn't hurt if they won't budge.

Thanks Sam. They came out very easily. I see now the replacements will have to be from the parts guy.
