newb question about studs

I took the head pipe off my XL250R to patch a hole last week and the studs came out with the bolts. I think I'm going to replace them as they're a little rusted, but how are you meant to screw the studs back into the cylinder head? Do you just thread them in finger tight, or is there a tool for this?

Perhaps I'm just missing something obvious, maybe someone can fill me in..



Double nut the stud. Put two nuts on the stud tighten them together then into the motor. Put some anti-seize on the stud before putting them back

That's the trick I needed. Thanks a lot,
