ARP headstud issues

Having some issues with my arp headstuds. The studs are sticking to far up and injector hold downs wont clear them. Has anyone heard of this issue before or have any ideas?

...Or you could be like the dingbats in Diesel power rag, and grind down the injector hold-down plates.

Seriously, find the 8 shorter ones (about 1/4" shorter) and put them in the right spot, and you'll be good to go.

Yep, they did. I even e-mailed them about the blunder, to which I received no response.

Not that I'm trying to stand up for them, but that's not an uncommon approach to making it work.
Lots of blocks don't have threads that go deep enough and I know of many guys that do that. It's not a big deal, really, it's just a hunk of steel. It's best to chase the threads with a bottom tap, but if you don't have one (lots of $$$) then grind a little if it makes it work out better.

They would be noticably shorter if they were all side by side.
I don't have specific lengths, sorry.
