Stud Question

Could you get away with installing headstuds without tearing everything apart by replacing them one by one?

I would do a search on the site, there have been literally tons of threads dealing with this exact question.

Bottom line: some say yes, some say no

yep, depends on if your fully confident that your heads are completely true. cause if they arent then you still have the possiblity of blowing the gaskets. so do you want to pay to have them done right the first time or pay twice.

I would say its your money and time and truck, if your doing it yourself, your out time and effort. Torquing those badboys is a serious PITA. I just did mine, and that was the worst part of replacing the headgaskets. if you are going to pay someone, I would say don't waste your money, save up and do it right one time. If you do the studs one at a time, I think it is a false sense of security.

Ok thanks for the help. I'd rather do it the right way the first time to save time and money that I don't have.
