For heavy work applications stud heads use is preferred over the bolts. As, studs provide the much more torque because on tightening studs don’t twist like the bolts. These studs remain the stationary during tightening purposes. Less wearing of the threads occurs by the use of stud heads. Also, the life cycle of threads increases by the use of studs. Cup installation become much easy by the use of studs. They also help in the alignment of the components. As, the main studs are stationary so there very less chances of the wearing of main cup. These were some advantages or pros of the studs in the engine.Head Studs are of different types and are easily available everywhere as engine components. Here is complete installation process and some advantages of the stud heads in details.
Installation of Stud Head
Before installing the Stud Head always read the instructions carefully. If a Stud Head with preload is designed don’t try to Double Nut it regardless of its design. In some conditions studs are installed in a finger tight manner but in some cases preload installation is required. AS, stud also align the Gasket and engine covers. Before installation lubrication is used. Lubricate the studs because lubrication effects the torque. As, torque variations occur according to the lubricant use. So, carefully pay attention on the instructions given by the manufacturers of the Head Studs.
Advantage of Head stud is that there is no need of worry about the clamping Load. As, bolts are long and Studs are stationary clamping load is controlled by tightening nut. In short, Head studs are the most important components of the Engine. Without these the alignment of the engine parts is impossible and the efficient working can’t be achieved without these vital parts of the engine.
