Who's installed 12.9 cylinder studs? Solved

Postby Motogoon » Mon Feb 12, 2018 11:02 pm

[album][/album]So about to put my 05 back together with new gaskets and studs. As per the manual I've got the new 12.9 studs with the 26mm thread to install. However that thread seems too short to fully go down into the cases. Pic of old and new side by side, the blue Mark on the old one is where it sits flush with the case surface.

Are they supposed to bottom out in the cases or do i just tighten them to 20nm and wherever they stop is right? I obviously don't want to damage the case thread!

Never mind, read that studs don't necessarily bottom out so tightened them up to the recommended 20nm and they stopped at exactly the right height. : )
