ARP is the undisputed world leader in automotive fasteners.
They manufacture every fastener, bolt and nut that the
world's top engine and chassis builders rely on in house.
ARP engineers ensure that every piece will outperform
any other fastener on the market today. That's why so
many top engine builders rely on ARP racing products to
hold their engines together.
overcome head gasket failures that can occur in diesel
engines employed in truck and RV applications, industry
leader ARP has introduced extra heavy-duty head studs
for the popular Ford, Dodge and GM power plants. These
ARP studs are rated at 220,000 psi tensile strength, and
provide the clamping force required to keep cylinder heads
from lifting due to higher combustion pressures. The studs
are manufactured in ARP's Santa Paula, CA plant from proprietary
ARP 2000 material, with threads rolled after heat-treat
to provide optimum fatigue strength. They are centerless
ground to assure perfect concentricity. The ends of the
studs are broached to facilitate easy installation. This
feature also enables the cylinder head to be removed in
tight quarters. Also included in each kit are heat-treated,
chrome-moly steel 12-point nuts and parallel-ground washers.
They are black oxide finished for extra durability.
should know that ARP® uses a premium grade 8740
alloy that is rated far superior to "aircraft"
quality. Then, each stud is precisely heat-treated to
200,000 psi. Following heat treat, each stud is centerless
ground to make it as close to perfectly concentric as
possible. This procedure involves about ten very slight
cuts and results in an exceptionally straight part.
It's important to note that lesser quality studs are
not even centerless ground, the material is thread rolled
in bar stock form (mostly before heat-treat, when the
material is easier to machine). Because ARP® studs
are manufactured to such exacting tolerances, you will
note that gaskets and cylinder heads literally glide
into position and are perfectly aligned, something that
won't happen with inferior quality head studs.
studs are thread rolled after heat-treat, which gives
them about 1000% (that's ten times) better fatigue strength
than those studs that are threaded prior to heat-treat.
will also note that ARP® offers specially undercut
studs for several engines. This procedure (done only
to the shorter studs) more equalizes the "stretch"
of both studs, which makes for a more consistent clamping
force, one that compensates for head gasket compression
when the head is installed. This helps prevent blown
head gaskets, and assures optimum sealing!

stud nut three times to recommended values found in
the general fastener chart below.
To ensure positive sealing of "wet" head studs,
a hardening or semi-hardening sealant, such as Loc-Tite
or Permatex, etc. should be used. Some engine builders
employ a sealer in the coolant, such as Aluma-Seal, Silver
Seal or K&W sealer, etc. You may also use high temperature
RTV silicone. Whatever product is used, it is imperative
that the cylinder head is installed and torqued to proper
levels BEFORE THE SEALANT HAS CURED!
