I guess then you don’t have/can't borrow a stud extractor? (the tubular type is better) If it's that tight you're likely to end up snapping it off. Possibly recut a slightly smaller thread?

Subject: [Healeys] Stripped Water Pump Stud



Had a half hour to spare this afternoon so I thought I would fit the new water pump to the BN3’s six-cylinder engine.


Of the four nuts, three tightened without a problem. but I managed to strip the thread the stud thread on the fourth.


Normally I would use the twin nut method, but with the stud stripped that’s not possible. So what to do? My 40+ year old vice-grips (mole-grips) can’t handle the strain and I don’t have a welder to weld on a nut, nor do I have an extractor.


Was thinking about filing the end of the stud flat on two sides and using a crescent wrench or what we call a shifting spanner. Any experienced advice out there?


Many thanks
