Anyone know if the studs for the motor mount at the frame is the same size as the exhaust manifold studs at the head? I have a strip one on the drivers side.
Thanks ElioYou will find something that will work at the VW parts counter, or a muffler place.
Will fit, correct thread for head, a bit longer. The VW stud has same thread each side, so you need to get a stud nut from them too. They don't use fine on the manifold side.
Before seeing your post I tried the double nut trick to back out the stud but stopped when it felt like I might break it.........making a difficult job worst.The stud in the chassis for the engine mounts are 8x 1.25. Coarse thread. I am sure they are welded into the chassis. It is a PITA to fix.
You might try using a 7x1 die to put some threads on it if it is badly stripped. Or a 5/16 coarse American die, as 5/16 is slightly smaller than 8mm.
Exhaust studs in the head are 8x1.25 head and 8x1 manifold. Centerline sells 8x1 brass nuts, I think. But if I understand you correctly, that is not where you are having the problem.
Been there!The stud in the chassis for the engine mounts are 8x 1.25. Coarse thread. I am sure they are welded into the chassis. It is a PITA to fix.
