Water Pump Question

Putting in a new water pump along with my new radiator. Discovered I needed to order four fan hub to water pump studs. They come in tomorrow. My question is this: what is the most effective way to thread these onto the water pump? I don't want to run the risk of damaging the thread that the fan unit bolts onto, so,if someone knows how to get this done I'd appreciate you sharing that info with me. Thanks in advance.

Just basic hand tools, nothing fancy that I recall when I did mine (unless I am not understanding what you are asking). For studs, typically if you screw on two nuts, they will lock down on each other and then you can turn the stud in...then back off the nut to free both nuts.


It's basically this, but do the same to install them.

Typically you just remove the existing studs from the old flange and reuse on the new pump. Just double nut the studs and back them out.

Of course, and it worked super. Thanks all. Now I can send back the studs I ordered from Chrysler at $7.99 per. Thanks for keeping me from the gougers.
