Rat, Yeah it came with long studs and short studs. I think one set of studs is for an older style pump shafts, and the longer studs are for the newer style but I dont know. I just used the ones that fit my application.
Was a pain to build but after I got it, they worked just fine

Wish I would have read this thread before I bought the pump from Trick. I have my doughts that this pump will last and you do have to drill the holes out in the factory bearing bracket for the KPM's to mount. Guess I will try them for a summer then check them for wear.

I saw Fred in Miami, he said he included a copy of these directions I wrote on each pump he sends out, Hell there are even pics and everything included.
Yes you have to drill as listed in the directions
