    ARP Head Stud kit arrived.

    Part Numbers are
    2 off *ATP7.675-1LUB
    8 off ATP6.350-1LUB
    10 off 7/16 12pt nuts
    10 off 7/16 washers

    Purchased directly from ARP.

    BTW if you need studs for the main caps I am told, it is the same as for a H22, H23.
    Part # 208-5401
    None of the above come with nuts or washers

    Obviously tell them you need the corresponding ARP nuts and washers.
    ***You have to use ARP washers/nuts with ARP Studs/Bolts

    These are a fantastic product and I could not recommend these more highly.
    I will be using a copper gasket with Hylomar Blue compound to help seal it.

    Very nice! I didn't know honda discontinued the head studs for our blocks. How long was the wait and how much was everything all up? Btw did you get a thicker head gasket since it's copper?

    Well considering I bought it in bits, that is a small concern. But I'm not in any rush. So I should be able to put it together without too much fuss.

    I was told at the service counter that they no longer stock them in Australia. I can only assume people are reusing the old ones. It didn't take much to twist my arm to get the ARP set though. I think its damned good insurance for a boosted setup.
    The copper head gasket is actually slightly thinner than the OEM gasket however it will not crush as much.
    Cost...243USD including 97USD freight.

    Great stuff Rob. Good to see you found ARP bolts as I couldn't find them when I was looking for them. A must for the setup you are running, I think you can push 22-25psi safely with that setup.
    Honda sell the bolts but take a couple of weeks to get here from Japan and cost close to what you paid for the ARP's.

    Keep up the good work.

    The copper gasket is an exact copy of the Honda OEM one. I have checked it. I understand that it is designed to restrict some of the flow through the head.

    Well its assembled and torqued up to OEM specs.
    Edit: Retorqued to 22ft.lb followed by 49ft.lb then 62ft.lb with ARP moly lube.

    Hylomar reference.

    The head is o-ringed.


    The distance from the seat to the top of the center stud is 16.5mm. This gives 5mm clearance to the cam.

    I received confirmation from ARP and they are in the process of setting up the part number for the set. I'll let you know what it is when I find out.

    Nice one Bob.



    Lol I finally know what getting a head o-ringed means!

    Also, from the below pic, it looks like the gasket holes don't quite match the water jacket holes on the block? Is that normal?

    My understanding is that the gasket acts to restrict and control the flow of fluids through the head. Its an exact copy of the OEM gasket.
