That is the right size. Not sure on this but if they are one of the special types, like self locking or something like that, they may be hard to get started.

Those are the parts I used and they did fit a bit loose. I guess that is for heat expansion. I got them from this website: www.atpturbo.com

I did the same thing. You have the right size. Mine felt too snug. I believe this is attributed to expansion/contractions from the heat as well as rust. Just clean the studs off really good, lube them and install the nuts. Make sure you use at least grade 10.
