Default Re: Need help in changing out the mounting studs.

"Double Nutting" (Sounds suggestively naughty) is actually termed as JAM NUTTING, unless you want to get laughed out of a shop don't use the previous term around experienced mechanics.

The preferred method of removing studs is with a stud removal tool like this one available from JEGS:

They work well to remove studs and allow putting the torque close to the stud end where it goes into the casting and will minimize the chance of twisting it off. It rated from 1/4" to 3/4" studs but mine fits well on the mounting studs of my bike engine.
