Q\' about head studs... So anyone running arp studs & nuts for thier heads instead of head bolts? Whats the proper way to install em? Seems like i've heard you use some loctite and install them in the block then put the head on and lightly snug the head down and leave it like that overnight so the loctite will dry and the studs will remain straight? Then you can slide the head on and off the studs. What is the torquing procedure? a dial indicator on the stud and measure how much strech as your tightening the nut with a box end wrench?? /forums/images/graemlins/dunno.gif How much strech? Should instructions come with the stud kit? Then do you need to re-torque them after like 500 miles break-in? Thanks.
