Re: ARP or H-11's
There sure are a lot of studs outside of the valvecovers......
Those outside the covers are exactly the ones I had to replace after about 3 or 4 years.
My solution was to replace every one of them that were outside the valvecovers and slather them with antisieze. A little dab of silicone on top wouldn't be a bad idea either.
Corrosion is a big deal. This engine was from Michigan though. So it was a salty bastard. The exhaust manifolds were WELDED to the up-pipes with rust.
Either way. It should be taken into account.
What was I thinking.
