Head bolt washer

Postby Bob McCarty » Tue Feb 21, 2017 7:23 pm

I've never been hot on cutting off head bolts to get the correct length as the anti-rust/corrosion coating is then removed. Stopped at Fastenal today and found grade 8 extra thick (.125) washers. Part # 11101304, 25 for $4.20.

Good tip, Bob. Those extra thick washers are also good for exhaust/intake manifold studs.

Are you going to dip the bolt threads in permatex then install them? That's why the head bolts are coated when we disassemble the engines. I seen antifreeze weep up and out of the bolt heads without coating the threads with permatex sealant.
I'm technically misunderstood at times i guess its been this way my whole life so why should it change now.
