Exhaust studs


Recommended Posts

Studs I thought would be better, I was going to use V8 head->exhaust manifold bolts.

3/8 unc sounds like the right size - need to check this at home tho'

There has been discussion about stud vs bolt and am I not convinced that studs are better. All production cars with rover v8 from the big makers had bolts fitted and I am not aware of there being problems.

One thing to bear in mind that if you don't have a lot of space around the manifold (like me, v8 in lwt), you will not get them on with studs; I struggled getting the bolts in, one was next to impossible until an inspired moment to use a short length of rubber hose to hold the bolt then turn it using one finger from each hand.
