Headstud help....

I am getting the truck from the dealer monday. They put whole new EGR system, new oil cooler, and both new heads and gaskets... They said they couldnt put my ARP studs back in(even tried to pay the tech $200) didnt happen. Could I drive the truck home and just take one factory stud out at a time and put an ARP in its place? And then when each side has all the ARPs, torque them to spec? Any input is appreciated..... -Jim

I havent changed the studs myself but I think the theory is there. Go one at a time according to the torque sequence. Remove and replace, then torque to FORD SPEC, then when all are installed go back through by sequence stepping up torque to the ARP spec of 245ft-lbs.

The real question is there enough room for the back bolts and stud to go in?

Thats only thing I am really worried about.. The stupid back studs. I have built and worked on motors for a while... I can always lift the cab but man I dont really want to bite off more than I desire to chew. I guess I will see when I get her back home... It has been almost 2 weeks and It sucks driving this Montero sport around and people laughing at me.... LOL

Anyone know where I can find the ARP and Ford Torque specs?

There was a slip in the ARP box that says 245ft-lbs with ARP moly lube. I am guessing but I think the Ford bolts are 180-200? Wonder if you would only need to jack the truck a few inches for the back ones and might be able to leave a few things still connected? There was someone on here that did a cab on head studs and I think he took out the HVAC system in the firewall, but I think that would be just as much of a PITA if you have access to a lift and can do it right?

Its been a week for me not having my baby, but at least I have another PSD to drive while I am waiting. My old OBS 5spd with 283k, and a clutch slave cylinder or master cylinder that seriously needs a replacement.

Its too late to do that... They didnt tell me until they already had it tore down. I will just have to try to install them myself....
