What is the proper way to install studs? I think I read a while ago about finger tightening and then torqueing to the value appropriate for the application. True? I want to put ARP bellhousing studs and oil pan studs in.

I believe the proper stud install is to tighten them finger tight, place item to be attached, then torque nut to specs.

I agree. They had something on one of the car shows on Speedvision the other day and they were installing studs for the main bearing caps on a chevy engine and also explained why studs were better. They too said just finger tighten them!
