Howzit.

Nice topic. This weekend I am installing a 40 Dellorto DHLA with a Linx Manifold onto my 160J that has an L20B motor and 5 speed gear box.

I will have to fix the threads on 2 ports in the cylinder head. Seem stripped. My question would be, since I will have to Heli coil repair those threads, would studs be better option than using bolts ? Would rather have studs and not mess anymore with the coil inserts again.

Anyone tried this before ? Any issues with mounting on studs ?

Cheers.

I am picking they are the Std 6mm thread, could you over size everything and retap head to 8mm, just fitting bigger studs, probably mare durable than Helicoils :P

Thanks mates.

Definitely studs is the way to go. Will do just that, looking for good quality studs.
