If there corresponding holes in the flywheel housing, then either is okay. If no corresponding holes in flywheel housing, you can drill and tap and again use either. I have four bolts, in the bottom four holes and studs/nuts for the rest

I am told early LT77s used studs but the NAS 110s ones I have seen used bolts.

Bolts would would be fine and are easiest/cheapest unless you have some appropriate studs laying around

When I took my 2.5TD out, it had mostly studs, with some bolts and some just missing... I went with all studs when I put the 200TDI in. I think there was one blank hole on the engine that I had to drill and tap for a stud.

Using studs vs bolts means fewer seized fasteners with time. It is a common fix to put studs in for the front timing cover as well or eventually you end up breaking off a bolt when changing the belt...

George,
first shot is of the 2.5 TD when it came out - not sure there were enough there to hold it. The next shots are of the blank hole in the 200TDI that I drilled and tapped. I used one of the studs from the 2.5, but it's a standard metric stud (M10 I believe) that I have bought at the local hardware store before. Final shot is of the 200 before I put it in.
