Cylinder head screws - exact definition

Recommended Posts

Working on the engine one cylinder head screw broke. Not an issue you think? No it isn't, but now I need a spare one to continue my work :-)

 

What is the exact type definition of this particular screw? Maybe knowing that I can source one directly in Germany.

 

 

thanks

are you referring to one of the head bolt itself as in 7/16 x 14 thread or are you speaking in terms of the smaller bolt that threads into one of the special head bolts for accessory mounting?  There are also bolts for the thermostat housing and oil filter bracket.....

these are available most any shop stateside, can use small block chevy item if you wish.  Summit will sell a set of 25 new in box for this application for about 25.00 I think it was...make sure they proper grade, undercut so not to seize.  Many like to upgrade to ARP studs at this time and finish off with chrome caps...we just had a good discussion on these less than two weeks ago..a search should reveal the recent posted data

Not OK. You need no less than grade 8 and you need an undercut shank as pictured.

Thanks to you all. As usual I have displayed a certain lack of experience and would have made a big mistake without all your insights. I have found a local resource that I was able to draw from.

These are for GM Chevy applications nearly exact match.  Cost about $1.00 each.  If not available where you live, ask your parts man or machine shop guy to cross reference the part number. Would think these or a cross over would be available where ever on the planet GM small V 8 engines  are used and sold.

hey Thom, If you want the real deal, start checking for companies that sell parts for Dodge WC parts (for the old army trucks) There are a few of them in Holland and Gemany too I guess. This is a very important bolt...  grtz  Franky Belgium
