I dont know how others do it but I use a pair of mole grips that fit em just dandy and give em a whack with a hammer and round they spin.
I think I've only ever had one or two that needed heat.

If yo need a hand I'll come do it for ya.

Yes I agree... in theory...

I've pretty much binned god knows how many of these sets as they are mainly pants (imo) even the snap on ones I sold when I was dealer.

But in the real world moleys work every time then just put new studs in theyre about 20p each.

Its only a rocker cover that's to be held on they'd be a little heavy duty lol.

Just playing devil's advocate but i think the poster needs to be clearer...

I say yes to mole grips if it is the rocker cover studs which are stuck...check on ebay volksbolts do a stainless stud (with allen key head) and stainless domed nuts

and i say yes to Tiz...if the poster meant cylinder head bolts.

Yes mike, I agree completely, but using ones noodle it's possible to read between the lines plus if you can remove the head studs (which are actually triple square headed bolts) by double nutting then I'd eat my hat, LOL Removing cylinder head studs Icon_santa

The stainless bolts and domed nuts are really smooth so much so I had to buy some.

Tiz, I am happy for you to pick up on me or other users but come on fella use your brains, which you clearly have, A little more please.

I read it as being the studs that hold the inlet and exhaust manifolds on the head.

Molegrips FTW

Well they would be rocker cover studs not "cylinder head studs". How do you know it hasnt had a stud conversion? Surely if somebody wants help you shouldnt have to read between the lines lol they should explain better.. Everybody thought they was something different haha.

This has turned into a full blown argument!

I did infact mean the studs which hold the rocker cover on.

Cheers for all the help though anyway.

Nice to see that even though you can dish it you can take it too.
