Way ahead of you on that, I have the engine apart and a bag of bolts to take to the Northern tool we have here. They will all be replaced with Hex head bolts and the mount studs are being replaced with threaded rod. Im even upgrading the float bowl bolts and hardware.
I replaced my tensioner with one of Dax's bearing upgraded versions weeks ago....
BTW...I live in Concord, which is Kannapolis's neighbor on the map.
