5 speed shifter removal! HELP NEEDED!!! (91 exploder)

I am replacing the clutch in my 91 explorer 5 speed. I need to disconnect the shift lever. the book says "remove the bolt and pull the shift lever off" The problem is there is a nut that is threaded onto a stud, which holds the shift lever on. I gopt the nut off no problem, but the stud wont budge no matter how I tackle it. I have tried penetrating fluid, a torch, etc, with a vice grip. the threads are now buggered on the one end, so it will be junk if I ever do get it out, but I cant get it. any info? I have the trans sitting unbolted and ready to come out, but this one thing is holding up the show! There are also 3 torx bolts that hold the shift mechanism into the interior of the trans. can I just remove the whole deal there?

Thanks
Craig

Hey,

Did you ever get an answer to this, or is that Explorer still sitting in your garage? I have exactly the same problem and would love to know how you solved it?
