head bolt grade? other ?'s

Postby 1955FCUBMAN » Thu Mar 04, 2004 5:09 pm

i've got just about everything cleaned on/in my engine. just have to grind valves and valve seats. question is. i need new head bolts. the service manual says to use only grade 8 bolts all that i can find is grade 5. does anyone know where i can purchase a set on the internet?

also should i replace the throwout bearing and friction plate, in the clutch.

also, can gaskets for non-engine related items like the radiator, tranny parts,etc. be purchased or must they be cut from gasket material?

Give Bermuda Ken a call at Carter & Gruenewald http://www.cngco.com He should be able to fix you up with everything you need.
If you can't fix it with a hammer, you've got an electrical problem.

My wife says I don't listen to her. - - - - - - - - Or something like that!

You can buy the original head bolts from your local dealer, or from http://www.cngco.com (Carter & Gruenwald. The short ones are $2.25 each, and long ones are $1.50 each. Grade 8 will cost nearly that much.
If you are not part of the solution,
you are part of the problem!!!
