Best way to seat studs in new water pump

Thought I was already to go and boom, realized I didnít transfer the studs to the new pump. I got the old studs off using the two bolt method but Iím having a hard time figuring out how that works in reverse or how snug the studs should be.

Sping to of the fan bolts on the same stud tighten the nuts against eachother then put a wrench on the bottom one to take it out of the old one then the top one to put it in the new one.

I think siva ^ was trying to say, jam 2 nuts together on a stud. Then use a wrench to back out the stud. That has always worked for me.

Only thing I can add is, the stud is usually loctited in, and is also fine thread. So don't be afraid to use a little heat to soften the loctite. Otherwise you may twist off the stud, which makes for a bad day.

I got the studs out without any problem. You think I should use loctite to put them back in? I didnít see any on the threads when I took them out. I made the make of taking the bolts off the studs so I was having a brain fart trying to figure out now to reverse the process to install them.

Same process in reverse to install them. I use a dot of red loctite just so if I ever have to take the fan off, the studs dont come with it.

Yeah, I Loctite them too (just blue though). They are fine thread on one end and coarse on the other for a reason. Ideally you want them to stay in the pump flange when you remove the nuts. Loctite helps make sure that happens.

Twisting off a stud is just a PITA. Not always easy to find the correct studs around town.

And just a friendly suggestion, your questions will make more sense if you learn to use proper terms for items.

Bolts
Nuts

Two different things.
