I learned something new today.

One of my exhaust studs was missing from my new-to-me motor. So without much trouble, I swiped one off of the old motor. So far, so good.

Threaded the new one in, and needed a way to finish tightening it. It's the #2 cylinder, so things were kinda tight. So I put two of the exhaust nuts on there, and finished it off. So I really did double nut a stud!

I know this isn't rocket science to most mechanics, but some days I'm kinda slow. :biggrin:

Doesn't matter if it's an old trick or not, if you figured it out, it's just as good as a new trick. :D

Someone once said there's nothing new under the sun, well I think there's plenty that's still new to me. ;-)

That's also an excellent way to get a stud out. Just in case you hadn't figured that out already. ;)

That's what I was originally told to do if I had problems getting it out.

Actually I just like saying double nutting a stud! :eek: :biggrin:
