I am looking for a source for high quality Montreal head studs. My usual sources don't seem to list them... or are they the same as late 1300 studs?
Thanks in advance
Thanks in advance
If you can't find head studs readily available, I suppose you could buy the longer studs, cut them to length and thread the cut ends.They are M12's like late 101's and 105's but only 190mm long with 22mm threads on each end. All the 101 and 105 studs I've ever seen are longer than that, So I'm on a search for new quality ones that will fit the Montreal.
Phil, ARP makes excellent head stud/bolt kits. However all their Alfa parts are custom and spendy.Hi Dale.
I used ARP ones in my engine, but can't remember if they were custom made or modified off the shelf ones as my engine builder did the removal and install as part of the machining work. He did have a lot of trouble removing the old studs... Partly because he was apprehensive in using brute force in case it snapped or tore a chunk out of the block.
I'll make contact with him and see if he any anything on file about the studs for you.
Van Lingen's supplier for Montreal head studs seems to have a supplier that provides quality studs with rolled threads. Price seems reasonable as well. Thanks for the tip.
Have already tried ARP. This is a custom order so they want $1500 to $1800 for a set of studs. That's not going to happen.Just contact ARP! What is the Length of the Montreal Studs? What is the Length of the Threaded Portion at each end and that is the Thread Size and Frequency (1.0, 1.25 or 1.5)???
If you have a Stud out of the engine, please send these simple details. I am sure that a number of Montreal Owners would love to have a Spare Set of Head Studs.
