Grateful Parrot Thanks. But did the Kroil on the top and bottom and let it sit for a little bit, then with a very light grip vice grips, they came right out. It's a good think I live about 3 miles from the Kano Labs.

gmiller0737 Very Easy I have done 1000's of water pumps,Put 1 nut on a stud & run it down about 3/8" or so Now put another nut on top hold the bottom one & tighten the top one locking the 2 together then remove stud by turning by lower nut,Reinstall in new pump than remove nuts,Repeat for the other 3 studs.

Anytime, & I hear ya, I had a similar escapade a few years ago with mine

The Toolman Yes, they should, & yes they are.

I would carry the old water pump with you to make sure you got the right size/length studs if you go that route though, there are a lot of different sizes believe it or not

Grateful Parrot thanks. will start dumping kroil on them and see if I can get them out. Would any of the big auto stores have them in stock? Are the studs still lefty loosy?

The Toolman No problem, yes you will either have to extract the old studs or get new ones. Typically, if you have soaked the old ones with a penetrant spray of some sort & cannot get them out by either using vise grips, doubling two of the nuts on a stud & wrenching the stud out that way, I would recommend seeking out some new studs

Water pump replacement help please. Pretty please.

Ok. This might be a stupid question for those who have done this a hundred times, but the replacement water pump did not come with the studs for the fan blade. Am I suppose to buy new studs or somehow take the old studs out and reuse them? TIA.
