How much does your APR stud stick out?
So long story short truck went to the shop to get head studs and gaskets. The shop that did it was a former Ford dealer but no longer is as of the last year or so, but still have a the ford mechanics. Job gets done, the start it up- #7 injector is misfiring. Skip ahead some more and even though my factory warranty is up, Ford has an extended deal with California for emissions stuff. The injector is covered by ford, but it has to go to a actual Ford dealership, so off it goes. So today the dealer calls me and says my head studs are loose, asks me when I got them done. I say 2 days ago. Call the original shop that did it and the call the dealer. The dealer which as done hundreds of these said that my stud stuck out of the nut further than usual. Apparently about 1/4in is what is normal for him, but mine were close to 1/2 in. They checked them though and they were all at 210ft lbs though. So eventually my original shop and i come to the conclusion that they are fine as long as the are all the same and torqued to spe. I was just curious from those who have done stud job/s or have them what you opinion on this is. Sorry for the long story.
