Before putting the head back on is it recommended to replace all the head bolt studs?

I don't know if I would replace them unless they were stripped or you questioned their strength for some reason, but FIRST I would:

Take a tap and run it through the threads in the nuts, and run a die over the stud threads to clean them.

This will help to insure that you get a good torque reading when tightening them.

Good Luck

dave i all-ways put new ones in,because i dont no who was in there last and used a im-pac gun and stretched the studs, tap the block good and coat the thred,s with some kind of water seal were they go in the block--do-not over tighten the studs,i think i toqreke the studs to 20 pounds ?. later wen you put the head on dont forget the heavy washers that go over the pipes in the head.s.i usally re-tourqe the head 2 times after it is warm,also i torque it up in 30 pound increments,it,s easy to do these things than have to go back in and do them agin.

Good suggestion on those washers. I did my H overhaul last year and ended up with two extra washers and had to ask you guys where they went. I think Red came through and said they go where you just said. Anyway, good advice is here for the asking, even if you don't ask. Thanks to all who help.

Today's Featured Article - Harvestin Hay: The Early Years (Part 2) - by Pat Browning. The summer of 1950 was the start of a new era in farming for our family. I was thirteen, and Kathy (my oldest sister) was seven. At this age, I believed tractor farming was the only way, hot stuff -- and given a chance I probably would have used the tractor, Dad's first, a 1936 Model "A" John Deere, to go bring in the cows! And I think Dad was ready for some automation too. And so it was that we acquired a good, used J. I. Case, wire tie hay baler. In addition to a person to drive th ... [Read Article]
