When replacing a head gasket on a B, I came across a head stud that came out that doesn't want to give up its nut. I tried would I could to remove it but no go. I had bought a new head stud and nuts from Case in the event I needed some spares. I came to discover the new stud nuts are not the same oversized nut like the originals. Am I ok to still put on the new nut with the rest of the originals, assuming I torque them all correctly?

Go to McMaster-Carr. Look under Fasteners for nuts. Look for Extra Wide nuts (about half way down the list). For example, https://www.mcmaster.com/#hex-nuts/=16iz4ps lists nuts in coarse and fine thread pitches. You will have to buy more than you need and they probably won't match the originals. But you will have enough to replace all the originals...

If you are nervous when it is torqued, double nut it with a jam nut, Jim

give some thread size details, and how are they different? presuming that the nuts are thinner with less meat, like the standard nut. the head needs all nuts torqued the same amount.

Today's Featured Article - Product Review - by Staff. When we finally checked out the 3000 PSI North Star, the whole story chaned. This unit was equipped with an 11 HP Honda engine with fuel shutoff, adjustable flow and optional syphon degreaser dispenser. It didn't have a pressure release or electric start to facilitate easy starting but according to the instructions, simply pulling on the trigger while cranking was sufficient. This method of starting proved more than adequate and kept the cost down on the unit. It had all the important ... [Read Article]
