Install the LS1 stud kit today… No issues but it was a good thing we did it because two more bolts broke off as we were removing and replacing them
Wow glad to hearOriginally Posted by djais1801
Got the start up ticking the other morning so I checked the bolts. Rear driver and pass side are gone. 05 EXT with 130,000.
Yes they do, its best to use bolts other than from the manufacturer
luckily...they all had been sticking out. he said if they were flush..you'd have to remove the head to get them out $$$$ yes that was the part #
lucky you, i had not only broken but recessed, my snap-on trusty extractor kit and an angle drill saved me from pulling the headOriginally Posted by djais1801
well crap, guess I need to check these as well.
FYI: this isn't a GM only concern. It's been affecting 99-10 model Fords with 4.6, 5.4, 6.8 motors as well. I have 1-2 on my V-10 at the moment that I bought all the tools for, just waiting for motivation to perform stud/bolt extraction and replacement.
does anyone know the thread/pitch for these 6.0 bolts? I'd rather buy stainless steel bolts/washers. I can get them for ~$10 vice buying a kit
