The wheel stud pressed into the axle from behind and just goes through the brake drum. You may be able to carefully drive the old stud out with a large drift and hammer. Good Luck Neighbor Kevin

</font>[/QUOTE]i recently had to replace the studs on the rear of my 67 i i removed the drum positioned the stud to a area that i could back up the axle next to the stud with a steel bar and used a punch and hammer to drive each stud out to put the studs back in i used large washers to draw them in with the wheel nuts

I just changed my studs when I rebuilt the rear end. When I was done I discovered that one stud on the rear had bad threads. Like the last post I used a bar and hammer with punch. I put the bad stud toward the front and applied pressure between the hub and brake shoe. Then I gave the stud a healthy whack with the hammer to get it going and finished with the punch. After I replaced the wheel I torqued them all to 90 ft.lbs. and took it for a 20 mile drive. I retorqued them and everything is fine.
