    so would it be better to have the double stud with the 2 grounds or does it not really matter? does the single stud have ground problems?

    The 2 grounds are better due to the corosion B/T motor plate & Motor Mounting Plate. Sometime with 1 ground on the case Motor does not get a good ground. 1 ground is on the Sump Base or case & other is on the motor.

    The unit with a grounded motor (two ground) will last longer and so will your gear pump.
