Questions: How long should head studs be??? I have a 1949 CJ3A with 134 L engine. . The head studs are 3.325” long, but do not seem long enough. Even after torquing the head down, the studs only goes about ½ way the nuts on the head.

Originally they were all the same size. This is what we've used on all our rebuilds for the flat head, 4-cylinder motor. Thanks

Questions: I'm going to replace the head gasket, and I think the collective wisdom is to replace all the head studs also. Are they all the same length? It looks like some of mine are shorter than others. I have a 51-3A with a rebuilt engine.

You need 15 of these and you are all set. Yes, I would replace. Also make sure to put sealant on them as well.

Questions: I have an MB engine, are the old TR cylinder bolts safe to use? What is the correct specification of a replacement bolts? How many bolts and studs is required? Thanks
Question By: Frank on May 14 2015 12:00 AM
They never used bolt originally they were studs on this with nuts. If you do use a bolt make sure it is hardened.

Questions: What is the thread on the lower portion of this stud? I broke some in the block and would like to drill and tap them out.
Question By: Thomas on Jan 1 1970 12:00 AM
They are coarse thread on the stud that goes down into the block. The nut end takes the fine end.

Questions: I have a 1949 CJ3A early model with a Kaiser Supersonic Head. do you have to tourqe the studs into the engine block at the same poundage as the head or do you just snug them up? Also do you use any sealant on the head gasket or any other treatment before instalion? The book says no, but I believe those old gaskets were made of copper or some other stuff. Thanks Tom
Question By: Tom on Mar 15 2012 12:00 AM
Sealant is not necessary but it doesnt hurt. I would torque them enough to make sure you have a good seal.

Questions: If you replace the head gasket do you have to replace these, or can you use the old ones?

It is typically a good idea to replace the studs. They do stretch over the years.
