Default Re: Acorn nut stuck on stud

That's true in some cases but I've also found studs of different lengths in the same engine. I've seen them as much as 1/4" difference in length. Common sense says to check this situation prior to torquing the head down the first time but, well, you know. Not everyone is going to do that.
