Had a bit of a set back on Friday, we were preparing the heads to go on the block and as I set one in place(with silicone and gasket on) I noticed we were missing the studs that go in the head.
So my dad called down to the head shop to see if they still had them(we didn't take them out, we thought), he said he didn't. So I went down there to see if maybe he had found them and no luck. He did have some short chevy studs that were the same length so I took them(only 4 and I need 8 ) So I had to search for more, I found some that were slightly shorter so we used them.
So after torqueing these suckers down I was sweatin.
We got the manifold all cleaned up and installed too.
We found out that we are missing the studs for the valve covers??? We didn't take those out either, hummmm, looks like another phone call to come.
So hopefully the local hardware store has some that we can get, we only need about 13.
So as always in a race year we are a little behind for the May meet. Lots of late night ahead.
