That's a sad looking stud. Congrats on the victory. I'd definatly clean up the female threads a bit at a minimum.

Good luck, been there before and don't want to go back.
PB blaster makes everything easier to work on, especially older cars with some rust on them.

Great job! I've never had it this bad, the worst i've ever had it was a broken spark plug inside my old Saturn. I was freaking out!
