Is there enough sticking out that you can weld a nut on it? I've had luck doing this before. The heat from welding seems to help free it up.

an old exhaust trick heat the stud,and take a candle put it on the edge of the stud and let the heat draw the wax into the threads, if done correctly ,it will come out as easy as can be.

This is the absolute best way you get some Kroil put it on as much as you can het the stud with a pencil torch lighter put more Kroil on it if you are careful enough with the lighter you will see the Kroil going right up into the threads that stud will unscrew with a pair of needle nose pliers. Ask me how I know this trick. IT WORKS.

Kroil is awesome worth a try before anything

Candle trick does work most times but gotta get it real hot

I would Kroil first then weld nut after that

Yeah sounds like the problem is when you disconnected that water seperater the water just went straight to the carb :slap:
