Getting them back in is not bad at all. There is a special tool for that too. It's just a case hardened sleeve about 3/4" o.d. with a 3/8" bore theaded 7/16 fine (I had a momentary lapse in thread pitch memory.) Then there is a hardened cap screw with a jam nut threaded in. Just set the depth, lube the stud with green locktite, and drive it home.You may get it out, but I'm not sure I fancy your chances of getting one back in.
Maybe I'm wrong, I'm sure someone will clear it up if I am, but I was under the impression that pressing the studs in was a job for the machine shop ?
The stud is NOT too long. The stud is the same length as the others in the head...it just so happens to be pulling out. The stud can be extracted and a new one installed while the head is still bolted to the engine. You will need the stud removal tool, as well as the installation tool. The stud boss needs to be heavily inspected for cracks. A cracked stud boss will no longer allow for a stud press fit. Then the head will need to come off. If there is no cracks, extract the stud, then install the new one with green Loctite (sleeve retainer)...no subtitution.Hello again. Got the nut off. Found out the stud is too long so the rocker arm wont tighten to specs. I know the perfectly right thing to do is pull the head and restud it. But just gotta ask. Can washers be put on the stud and tightened to zero lash?
