Anyone ever had an ARP stud break? Not in a running situation, but during building a motor? Ive got a broken ARP 2k head stud Im dealing with on a buddys motor I was putting togeather.
I assume the same, as I have torqued my heads down to 120 ft lbs twice on the same studs and never had a failure.Now I'm convinced ARP has a bad batch of stuff out there not heat treated properly.
What a bunch of dickheadsI used ARP moly.
I ordered a replacement stud today from ARP and talked with them on the phone. About the onlything I got out of them was "they have never heard of any studs just breaking" and send it back for us to test and if we find a problem with it we will replace that stud. What a joke.....it broke! There is a clear problem with it. I just ordered one; I dont see any sense in paying to send this one back to maybe get it replaced and having to wait on them to make their decision.
