I didn't think you were supposed to bottom them out when installing .

Or maybe reuse your connecting rod nuts.

No reason not to dust off that once clamped but unused head gasket hanging on then nail too.....

Yes, those look to be of high quality....., would you take $4 each (1/2 price of knew) + shipping....? I'm already overextended on my latest rebuild and need some Gray (fine) 3M Scotchbrite to finish my last lapping stage of my cylinders.....

House of the rising sun maybe?

I'll give these for free if you promise to use them. Would be such a waste to not reuse them after all these were installed only once...

I think you're agreeing with me again and disagreeing at the same time.

I was not and am not a proponent of reusing removed factory studs.

I'm quite sure that's abundantly clear to anyone who read this thread except you....

I'm perfectly aware of that but it's fun since you bite based on author, not content.

Was pulling studs for my backup race engine (ironic since I'm not finished the 1st one yet... ) and I remembered this thread when I was almost finished removing.

So, I whipped out my tablet and propped it up to take a vid of the time it takes per stud using the TIG method.

Basically, you just make a few vertical passes with the torch about 2 inches in length, then weld the nut and remove.

I use the T bar so the force isn't one sided like a ratchet (same tools in pics above from a year+ ago).

I lost my ground when moving to the nut, and still total ET for 1 stud, less than 2 minutes.

Nice work! Don't breath that lingering white smoke from the zinc plating or you'll get sick!

There's a pedestal fan out of frame to the left but I turned it off for the video.

And you are right 100%.

My helper's (guy walking through frames) boots run a close second though...,
