Hey all,

In preparation to get a couple of 1600 engine builds going, I am taking the front and rear studs off of the blocks I am using to get vapor blasted. However, as I found out, the front of the block longer studs are more susceptible to breaking - ugh.

Therefore I am on a search for two (2) sets of long studs (6 x 2 - 12 ttl) or even two sets of complete studs (9 x 2 18 ttl) for a 1600 block. I would also take the 4 M8 studs that the bell housing attached to as well on the back of the block. (M8 x 46 mm long 14 mm short side x 1.25 pitch x 12 mm middle shank x 20 mm long side x 1.0 pitch)

Working from the top to bottom of the engine, starting with the intake side first, I would like to see if anyone has these studs collecting dust from cracked or non-useable blocks. Not sure if the 1750 or 2000 blocks have the same stud lengths, and if they do, then using these studs opens up possibilities.

**Please note that stud lengths have been rounded down and rounded up when appropriate.

Intake
Stud #2: M6 x 1.0 pitch - 88 mm long (12 mm short side x 59 mm middle shank x 17 mm long side)
Studs #3 & 4: M6 x 1.0 pitch - 58 mm long (12 short side x 29 mm middle shank x 17 mm long side)

Exhaust
Stud #1: M6 x 1.0 pitch - 97 mm long (12mm short side x 68 mm middle shank x 17 mm long side)
Stud #2: M6 x 1.0 pitch - 92 mm long (12 mm short side x 63 middle shank x 17 mm long side)
Stud #4: M6 x 1.0 pitch - 76 mm long (12 mm short side x 47 middle shank x 17 mm long side)

Note: Anyone interested, the three remaining studs are M6 x 1.0 pitch 35 mm long (12 mm short side x 6 mm middle shank x 17 mm long side)

I am also on the search for a good used front cover as well.

I will call the usual suspects but was trying the BB first as it is a useful resource. I will also try to source via the web, so what strength of stud should I look for - 5.8 or 8.8?

Thank you, and please advise.

I have 1300 and 1600 front covers with Fuel pump mounts, and 2 new Head studs.
Fred is a friend and don`t have to sell Covers and Studs as a package.
Both for $160.00 & shipping or $50 for the two studs & shipping.
