Changing out to the longer studs that come with the hardware kit. Got the old stud backed out with the double nut method with a lockwasher between nuts. I have the recommended thread locker Loctite 620.

Long time stud, first time stud changer......

How much loctite is needed?

I found in the service table of limits 25 in-lbs for 5/16 studs but they call it minimum driving torque. Does that mean when I get the stud to 25 in-lbs it’s in correctly or is there another metric to go by?

In general, you only need loctite on 2-3 threads at the tip of the stud/bolt. Screw it in until the middle section (unthreaded) is just snugged against the sump.
