Datsun Roadster 2000 Head Stud & Nut Kit Set of 10

U20 High Performance Block Stud & Nut 10 piece kit. Far superior to original head bolt method of fastening the head to the block. No needless re-torquing of the head required. NOTE: Re-use your old washer set as this kit does not come with washers.

Rated at a tensile strength 190,000 to 200,000 PSI. Material 8740 Chrome moly. U.S. made. These studs have a hex in the end to allow the user to run the studs down into the block. 12 point flat bottom nuts included.
These studs eliminate problems associated from head bolt use. Common problems include bolt breakage, block and thread damage, less clamping force and bolt stretch, constant re-torquing of cylinder head, rear oil gallery leakage. Keep that head from moving around. General fastener torque spec. 80 Ft Lbs Ultra torque lube. Be sure to add on Ultra torque lube Part# 2464 when purchasing this kit.

INSTRUCTIONS: Please be sure to clean out the block holes. These are studs are a free floating fastener so it is not necessary to Lock Tite or bottom them out and torque the studs into the block. However, it is important to have as much threaded engagement in the block as possible. The stud should not pass through the nut. Doing so will lessen the threaded engagement of the stud in the block. 3 rounds, crossing pattern on the head up to 80 ft lbs.

SPECIAL NOTE: Original U20 head bolts were un-heat treated and have a tendency to stretch and or break off in the block. Early head bolt head diameter measures .622. Later, better quality, replacements that are currently available are $240.00 for the complete set and they measure .702. If you have the early head bolts we strongly recommend replacement with our stud kit.

SPECIAL NOTE: All of the head bolts on the passenger side of the block are the same length. It is not necessary to be concerned about the stud length where the, cylinder head, locating dowels are placed. We have found that there is enough, threaded engagement in the block, to allow a proper torque.

NOTE:Please also look at PART#'s 1152 & 2551, for important information, to determine if you need thicker lash pads if you are using a re-ground cam or thicker cam tower shims.

Datsun Roadster 2000 Upper Tensioner Shim Kit W/Gaskets Tensioner not included

Keep your upper tensioner tight and prevent the deadly death rattle that accelerates wear to your, expensive to replace, timing parts. A tensioner that sticks out to far will have to fill each time, thus moving from the relaxed position to the fully, extended hydraulic position, each time the engine starts, with the result of a rattling chain slapping against the guide rails and sprockets. Great little kit for those of you that can't afford new pieces or have worn pieces or an overly planed cylinder head resulting in the tensioner shoe sticking way out.
Directions: Start and run the engine until the oil gauge shows pressure, usually about 15 seconds to 30 seconds. The tensioner is last in line to receive oil pressure. Remove the valve cover and the front access cover. The upper tensioner should be tight against the chain and the chain should be tight on the other side of the cam sprocket. Measure the distance between the back of the shoe and the front of the cast tensioner housing and take note of the distance. Take one of the zip ties and work it through the front of tensioner and loop around the cast housing. Pull and tighten the zip tie as tight as you can make it. Put a rag underneath the tensioner area to keep the bolts from falling down into the engine. Loosen the two bolts and extract the tensioner. Hold the tensioner and cut the zip tie and remove the shoe. Add the washers included in the kit to make up the distance you measured. Put the other zip tie around the assembly and tighten. Reassemble the tensioner/spring, with the gasket supplied, into the engine and tighten down the bolts. Cut the zip tie and assemble the access plate with the new gasket.
