stud torqure

well i talked to the local ford today and the service manager agreed to do head gaskets and studs under warranty for free. he was very easy to deal with and said yes to installing the studs without a fight. he even said the will do the gaskets even though there not blown yet..... however he said he needs the torque spec for the new studs. anyone know what it is? thanks, john

i was stunned when he didnt put up a fight at all. i told him that i dont want my gaskets to blow and then ruin a head out of warranty and it cost me 3000 so he said ok get the studs and we'll do it right away. it was easy.

same why with mine i talked to the tech before hand and was very straight up with him and he even recommended the studs. he said as long as your straight up with him and dont lye about mods ad act like they have to do for you he will do them but i understand there not all like that

Yup, 245 ft-lbs is correct. There's always some debate about how many steps my tech used 5: 100, 140, 180, 210, 245 (or something like that).

ARP headstuds

1. Clean holes in block and make sure they're free of debris and oil
2. Screw studs into block -- snug, not torqued down
3. Install head gaskets
4. Install heads
5. Apply a liberal amount of the ARP moly lube on the threads of the bolts and nuts as well as both sides of the washer (where it touches the head and where it touches the nut). Very important step to ensure you get a good reading when you torque down the nuts.
6. Following the factory torque pattern (center ---> out), torque to 135 ft lbs.
7. Following factory torque pattern, torque to 180 ft lbs
8. Repeat torque procedure to 200 ft lbs, then 220, then 230, then 245/250.

I understand that the torque pattern is as important as the torque itself.
