For some reason, I only have 1 of the 2 mounting studs present on my jdm tranny. These are the 2 that go through the tranny mount.

I have some spare cases. Is it possible to somehow remove the stud from another case and screw it in here? I tried using vice grips and it wouldn't budge.

Should I just use a bolt instead. Anyone know what size bolt?

make sure threads inside are clean and junk-free.

Find another mounting bolt. Be sure to use a washer if bolt is close to bottoming out.

99% of the time on a honda, if the hole is the same size, its the same threading.

Or you can find another stud and use 2 nuts tightened against each other, and majority of time it pops the stud out without screwing the threads up, unlike vicegrips

96-00 only have the one stud in the rear. You can buy the stud from Honda, expect a week wait, why I bought 5.

Now if you use too long of a bolt it will punch a hole through the case...

Thanks Matt. I'll try using the two nuts or finding another mounting bolt.

Thanks Bone. I'll measure the depth and make sure I don't use too long of a bolt. I'll also see if I can find that part number for the stud.

Thanks,
Ryan

if you got a local junkyard, hit that up for a bucket of engine/tranny/suspension bolts

You can never have enough bolts laying around.

quick and dirty hole depth finder is simply a screwdriver, finger on the shaft level, and make sure bolt is at least 1/4 inche shorter to account for debris in hole, and thermal expansion.

If you find you only have a very short bolt, a TINY bit of red threadlock will hold it fine, but be a pain to remove. you have been warned lol Anything more than a drop can yank threads out in aluminum

The stud I installed was in a case that had been punched through, three drops of red threadlock means it is never coming back out or leaking.

Ok. So I was able to extract the bolt from the doner tranny using 2 nuts. I extracted the stud that I had not yet chewed up with the vice grips. I measured the stud and the hole just to make sure. I had a little help from the impact. I put red locktight so they shouldn't be coming out.

Now I am off to bed since its almost 4AM and I have work tomorrow.

Thanks again for all the help Matt and Bone!

Rent a stud socket from your local parts store and you'll remove the stud without a problem and not damage it

Used the double-nut technique many a time to remove bad studs for better ones. Only once did I come across a trans of mine that had a hole stripped so badly that a new stud would have been useless. In which case, time for a helicoil or better yet, a timesert.

Interesting. Thanks for pointing that out. I just read about the timesert. I was not familiar with that product line for thread repair.
