K3vet Arp Head studs


#1

Hi guys, im having some trouble with my ARP headstuds in the head as there is not enough room to fit the bolt. Has anyone else experienced this problem or know a way around this?
The studs are 10mm not 9mm like factory. The head and block has been drilled already. They work perfectly on the block etc

Picture? I had trouble on a diff head getting the nuts to fit. Internal wrenching ones that use an Allen key were needed. I did contact ARP and they helped a bit. The project is at a halt and I’ve not purchased these nuts as yet. The nuts that would have worked for me are from the Audi kit and can be seen in the image below (they look like short tubes) image

that great news! Whats the best place to look at getting these or is it best to ring ARP?

I called ARP in the USA. Was going to do a special order. The guy I spoke to said he could send the nuts that are normally part of the Audi kit. You’ll need to confirm the thread diameter and pitch and see if they have them already. 10mm should be a normal size. But M1.5 or M1.25 is what they’ll need to know?
