Vanguard head bolts
« on: May 15, 2019, 08:59:01 AM »
So I'm looking into either using ARP head bolts or ARP head studs .. but I can't seem to find the head bolt dia and thread pitch .. it's a 35ci block with 38 heads. Just thought I'd ask now so I can order them while I'm at work .

It is a metric pattern, I had a link on my old computer
for the fastener sizes. After lunch I will see if I can find
something out.

That's be great , thanks ...

Once I find that out , I'm hoping ARP  will have something I could use...

I'm surprised that with all the after market parts available for the vanguard , that there isn't anyone offering them on thier web sites.

So I did find the size ..  M8x1.25 x 85.7

So ARP didn't offer a stud , but do have a five pack of 8x1.25x85mm bolts for $37.00 .  Part # 661-1013

This will fit my 35ci vanguard with 38ci heads ..

 Wrong part # .. that was for 80mm long bolts ..

For the 85mm long bolts , it's 771-1018 ( ARP )
