I'm sure you meant ARP, which sells high strength head bolts and stud kits.

Good reminder to get your torque wrenches actually calibrated every now and then. Not just checking against how another one feels, but actually putting a known torque load on them.

I was wondering if someone was going to point out the AARP goof-up...lol...

When I was a maintenance man for E&J Gallo winery in Livingston California back in the late 1970's one of my duties was operating a 49 foot Grove rubber-tired crane with a 20K pound capacity. Quite a machine! Pretty often, I'd be working out of sight of my load, which consisted of several people in a "man basket", doing maintenance work on pipe systems 40 feet off the ground or more. That kind of situation makes it very important to do exactly what the guy giving me hand signals wants to happen!

About the only kind of transportation I haven't worked on is a train. Cars, trucks, boats, airplanes, construction equipment, etc., yes. Hey, I'm only 75 years old- - - -maybe there's still time left to learn anothe skill or three!

One bit of trivia about a load shared by several fasteners, such as a cylinder head, or a wheel and tire assembly- - - - -the tightest fastener holds virtually all the load, up until the point where it stretches or breaks. Then the next-tightest one takes over until it fails. The mouth-breatiing impact wrench jockey at the local tire store who installs your wheels without using a torque wrench just might be making your vehicle a rolling deathtrap! A lot of the "wheel loss' claims against Firestone, Goodyear, and other franchise tire stores that I investigate involve progressive breakage of lug studs. Guess why!

The last guy to touch the wheel did it right ……but……gets blamed for the last 5 guys that over torque the lug nuts.

Does this kit have a drilled stud or some provision for the drilled head bolt that provides oil to the rocker assembly?

That drilled bolt is only needed with certain early cylinder head/late engine block combinations. It's not necessary for all applications, and it's a very simple task to drill the bolt if necessary.
