headgasket repair that are used instead of timeserts.

Anybody know of /and or used these "miracle" studs????????

IMO, with 20 years repairing aluminum Alfa Romeo I4 and V6 engines and Jaguar V12s, studs really are the way to go.

I NEVER had a propblem with a stud pulling out of a block (not to say that this cannot happen). In aluminum motors with poorly maintained cooling systems; aluminum oxide can virtually cement the head to the head studs making it very, very difficult to pull the head off the block (special pullers are available). I always put a very thin coat of never-sieze on the shanks of the studs on re-assembly to prevent oxide in the future (extreme care to not contaminate the headgaskets or sealing surfaces of block and heads reqd.). The never-sieze always worked and the studs always worked.

Put me down for studs!

Personally, to me, if a bolt can pull, there is no reason why a stud would not pull, especially if it has to do with deteriorated aluminum
