Head stud question?

When installing head studs,can you remove one head bolt at time and install a head stud?

Or do you have to remove the heads and replace the head gaskets and install the head studs that way?

ive heard of it being done on the 6.4 and i believe you have more room under the hood so i dont see why not as long as your miles arent too high.i would say if about 75,000 go ahead and do the gaskets.im sure someone else will chime in.

there is people doing it one at a time on the 6.4l but thats because it is a royal pain to pull the heads. I have heard it's hit and miss when it comes to it working and not blowing the gasket. I would pull the heads on a 7.3l and replace the gaskets when doing head studs. It's alot easier to pull the heads on a 7.3l then a 6.4l or 6.0 and if you take the time to pull the heads and replace the gaskets then you don't have to worry about it.

Yup, it is done all the time. I have done it on two trucks other than mine that I did that way.
