    Yea, but to leave customers hanging like that ain't good either. There's a thread somewhere a member has been waiting 90+ days for a kit, not good at all.

    Re: Wheres jake We need studs

    Timesert block and use ARP studs for VW motor. Am waiting for someone to try it. Why both? Cuz timeserts are known to work and applying torque to nuts on top of heads should lessen chances of timesert failure. If u can install timeserts, than screwing in the studs should be easy. And it might even be cheaper than jakes studs once u buy the timesert kit and use it on several motors to even out cost. Do u want to buy studs from ARP with ease or from the mysterious jake?

    No, i prefer norms over timeserts. I have drilled out several sets of serts and installed norms. I will do that if need be but this customer really wants studs.

    ARP will work with you for a set of their HT studs to use in the NS300 inserts. No, I have not used their studs in a Northstar, but have used about 15 sets in Olds 455's. Good product.

    Re: Wheres jake We need studs

    Read my post in the lounge. I am hoping tomorrow is a new day. I'm getting back to work. I am under a great deal of torment. FWIW there had been cars waiting in Ontario since August and they have just been completed. One more to go. I'm at the stud shop now to crank the sets out.

    It's wrong to leave customers hanging. I deny nothing. I need to get better again and then I need to assign a "Second in Command" so that if either of us has issues preventing us from working or fulfilling our duties, business still carries on.

    Re: Wheres jake We need studs

    Please don't mistake anything, the gears of business are always turning in my mind. I have more than just stud kit customers to look after, vehicle repairs as well, because the stud kits don't cover the bills (at least they haven't yet).

    Expect a good update in a day or two.
