Yes, what Poncho said will work. If you can get some sort of grip on the bot with vice grips or something like that, you can even skip the "weld a nut on it" part. Get it hot - cherry red hot - and turn it out.

However, you need to be careful because you have been putting a lot of oil in that area. Don't set the thing on fire.

Actually, in some cases, there is a solution for this problem. There are replacement studs that are manufactured with a hole down through the center. This stud is held in place on the end of the old one and then you slide the wire on a wire welder up through the hole and pull the trigger to weld the new stud to the old one. Had it done once about 10 years ago. I'm sure they are still available. Good luck!
