I've been doing a bit of research on head studs for a 12mm head.
They are about $180/set at Raceware.
ARP doesn't have a set specifically for the VW diesel but they have a
set that "should work". I gave them the following information:
head thickness: 3.1
from deck surface to first thread: .5"
deck surface to bottom of hole: 1.72"
thread spec: 12mm, 1.75mm pitch
gasket thickness: .068" (rough measure with cheap caliper)
available land for nut, washer: .82"
I talked to Mike Rose 805 525 1497 x203 at the ARP factory. They
would recommend a 5.4" stud, but they have a 5.75" stud for a Cummins
that should work. This is a 200000-something strength material, unlike
studs for the cars which are at 175000-something.
The total price on this stud is:
4.47 nut (.502" tall)
15.45 with 15% off "jobber rate" which we can apparently ask for and get
The model number is AU5.750-2LB
I think this would fit my '85 Quantum TD engine nicely, since we've got
room to torque the bolts with the engine on. I'm not looking at a head
right now though, so any feedback welcomed.
