I was made in Dallas,68 year’s ago, I’ve been a mechanic all my life, and have a 2002 Deville w/4.6L Northstar engine, it has a compression leak in the coolant/ head gasket leaking. I’ve decided to stud the block 5/8”x11. I bought 7”long grade 8 CAT BOLTS and cut the hex heads off, then turned them down on a lathe, from the 5/8x11 threads to reduce the shoulder to a 1/2”. My question is: wii the heads bolt holes allow a 1/2” diameter stud, or do I need to keep on machining down to 7/16”. If you know I’ll be waiting for an answer, and very appreciative of your knowledge. Thanks
