Default Re: Head stud kit

I'll tell you this; you'll not find an 8mm stud with a 1 thread pitch. Yes, I've heard that some can "force" a 1.25 stud into a threaded hole with a 1 pitch, but that is what we call being a "hatchet mechanic". It's the same as "forcing" a 1/4 x 20 screw into a 6mm x 1 threaded hole. Yes, it can be done but it's not the right way to do it.
