Installed per there "new" instructions, bottom threads in case torque to 12lbs...

put the block, head and new cometic gaskets on the engine, and the damn studs are 1/2 of an inch to short..the stud only goes half way through the nut??

These studs don't have the machined allen wrench in the end of the stud like previous guys have bought so I can move the stud up..

Wasted $150 new Cometic gaskets, $200 on the ARP studs, and another $100 for a set of APE studs I have to Order



Get the APE....

yea, unless you torqued the head down to spec you can reuse the gaskets.

actually ive reused them when they have just been through heat cycles
the cometic is a 3 layer steel gasket and can take a lot more then an oem
