Default Re: Warning to All! - Everyone look at this!

Stainless is NOT stronger than alloy steel bolts. Not sure where this one got started, but people call us all the time and ask if our hardware kits are "stainless", because they want the strongest. When I say, "no" they basically hang up. Some will listen when I explain a bit about metalurgy. If you want all the hardware for an engine in stainless, all in one kit for under $10, knock yourself out looking. But don't kid yourself about it being "stronger".
