68 Seat Rail
« on: September 15, 2020, 09:53:02 AM »
One of the threaded studs that mount my driver's seat to the floor has damaged threads.  I am not sure if these threaded studs can be pressed out and replaced of not?  Does anyone out there have a spare seat rail with good studs or if the studs can be removed does anyone have any replacement studs?
Thank you,
Corey

You can remove the stud and weld in a new 5/16-18 NC stud. Or buy a complete set or individual parts from WCCC:

Sorry I posted the link to bench seat - here's what you likely needed:
