Included in this listing is a big end stud kit to suit 3.5 3.9 and 4.2 engines. Sure, you could fit standard bolts but those are far more expensive than the studs listed here and worse quality. We use this same stud kit in our own engines (as with everything we sell) so quality, reliability and long life are guaranteed and proven hundreds if not thousands of times.
Suitable for 3.5 3.9 and 4.2 Rover V8 engines
DO NOT use the supplied lubricant - we install the studs and nuts using Loctite 243
Torque setting: 40 lb/ft
Take extra care when working on the bottom end of your engine, anything that comes loose will be the end of your engine.
