HEAD STUD QUESTION

How can you tell if your studs have been replaced by looking at them?
Or is it even possible?

I bought the truck used and want to see if they have been without calling the previous owner.

a oasis report would tell you if the heads have been done, the factory bolts if replaced dont look any different , the aftermarkets are a 12 point nut , the factory are a 6 point bolt

also if you look in your engine bay look at the head, on the 3rd cylinder back you should be able to see either an exposed bolt head or an exposed stud and nut, if its a bolt head then you dont have studs, if its a stud and nut then you have head studs and are good to go...correct me if im wrong

would a dealership put stock studs back in it if they replaced it under warrenty?

Only if the customer requested it and brought in the studs. I can't imagine a dealer would do it on their own since the studs cost at least $380 or so, and Ford will not pay for them.

Open the hood and look at the drivers side of the motor above the 3rd cylinder from the front of the motor or between the air filter and brake booster. If it has a stud with a nut like in the pic below it's studded. If it has a bolt then its not studded.

ARP studs. I hear that H-11 studs might get brittle then snap.
