Default Re: Threaded rod? Bolts?studs?

Where are you planning on using it? Cylinder studs? Make sure you get the right thread. Some engines have course threads in the case, some use fine thread. They might be 1.25 or 1 threads. Discard the kit acorn nuts and replace with hex nuts of the proper thread.

If you're thinking intake and exhaust manifolds, why use studs and nuts? Go with Allen head cap screws instead. Only one set of threads to worry about instead of two.
