Re: My 1st motor is on it's way & I need help!!
The studs will be okay as long as you don't over tighten your head nuts. Also, sometimes the short style acorn nuts that come with many engines will bottom out on the studs, when this happens as you turn them to tighten, the threads will get stripped, both on the nut itself, the stud threads, as well as the threads in the crank case. It's recommended to replace the acorn nuts with quality nuts from your hardware store and don't over tighten them.
