Missing head studs

Hi everyone, Back again with a small update and a new question. As most of you know it's been cold lately so I haven't spent much time in the garage working on my "57" Dexta diesel engine.

Got the block stropped down and the head removed and striped, found out that the engine has been worked on before and missing two head studs (they put in bolts in there place) and signs are that, that is the bad cylinder causing my problems.
Going to remove the front end and pull the engine as soon as it worms up a little. But dose anyone know where I can find new head studs? The two bolts were over torqued compared to the rest of the head and I could have a warped head (the machine shop will tell me for sure when I get it checked). Also dose anyone know where I can download a parts manual online for free?

Hopefully I will have the block and head in the machine shop by Christmas. Walt

Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

These look like they might work, I know that the stud is
7/16" NF-thread on one end and Coarse thread on the other end. Will have to pull a stud to find the length though.

I have ordered studs from Fastenal, they can even make custom ones.

They will be expensive. If you have the Fordson part number, I'd first check at a Ford dealership,
even cars and trucks may have used the same stud. If possible take one with you, or take the cap screw and say you want a stud instead. Lacking a Ford dealer, the same thing could be tried at
CIH or JD.
