Not much room in the engine bay for me. I wonder if I can get the 3v to fit in there... only have an extra inch or so of clearance with the 2v though so I doubt it.

Well, I've bitten off more that I can chew. Upon attempting to drill out a stubborn stud on the passenger side, I was extremely negligent, and arguably did the worst thing I could have done. I drilled way too deep and hit a water pocket.
Now I have to decide what to do next. I've been given many repair suggestions, but I'm told the best method is to replace the head.
Can anybody share some experiences or suggestions with replacing the head?

A link to a head replacement forum might be helpful too. Thanks.

I would just put a set screw in there with liquid teflon. Then adjust the length of the bolt.

It's kinda slow at work today, spent lunch reading thru some older exhaust related threads on here. I realize I'm resurrecting an older thread.

AndersMatsson: Sorry to hear of your misfortune, did you ever get your truck back up and running?

truckfella: Yes, I did get the truck up and running. I ordered a 1/16 NPT tap and an aluminum allen head npt plug. Sealed it with the high-temp thread locker, and installed the bolt for the header. I put some stop-leak in the coolant as well, just in case. I got the truck running and have had no leaks to my knowledge...hopefully it stays that way

Cool, glad ya got it fixed without buying a new head! It sure is nice not having to listen to that leaking mess any more. Ours was more peppy after putting the headers on. How is yours running?

I didn't want to deal with the hassle of pulling the old head off, and possibly pulling the engine out to do it. I'm pretty happy it sealed.
It is definitely nice to not have to worry about the leaking exhaust at the manifold, caused from broken studs. I did have leaks at the two slip joints after installing the headers, which was when I was using the u-clamps supplied with the Banks kit. So, I ordered some exhaust band clamps (thanks for the advice Lance) for the joints on Amazon, and they worked great.
