    Finding the stud won't be all that hard. Getting that broke off bitch outta the threaded hole is going to be your real problem. I hate to be you about now.

    It could actually be faster to swap to the hydro setup. Not cheaper of course, but potentially faster.

    It almost looks like that but it has a big huge washer deal under the threaded piece.

    That's makes me wonder if it's not the right one and someone shimmed it, or did it break before and someone welded it back together?

    That's a thick felt washer to keep the grease inside.

    Please post a pic of what you are referring?
