ARP Studs for 200

Post #1 by RichCreations » Sat Mar 05, 2016 10:08 pm

With CI gone, I thought I should share what i have found so far, after ordering studs for my 200 (rod/main/head) from Does10s

The Rod bolts, are really for a v6 and are this part: http://arp-bolts.com/kits/ARPkit-detail.php?RecordID=524

The Head Stud kit for iron log heads are these: http://arp-bolts.com/kits/ARPkit-detail.php?RecordID=519

The Main studs I received, are too long, and I am returning them (they were the same as the head bolts, and would work on a 250, 240, 300), and will be calling ARP monday to find what fits...

FYI UNLESS YOUR BUILDING A RACE ENGINE, STUDS ARNT NEEDED. MAIN AND HEAD THAT IS. NOW ROD BOLTS YES GO FOR IT. THERE THE SAME AS SBF. JMO

Well, I won't be re-using 51 year old bolts on my turbo build... and I am doing worse then building a race engine, I am putting a turbo 200 in an econoline that goes up mountains loaded...

send does10s an email, he may still have some head studs or even bolt kits available. his email is listed in a number of threads regarding classicinlines.

Thats where i got them, however the main studs were not the correct size, and he does not have any that fit... And since his supply will dry up, I thought it would be good to share part#s

NOR DO YOU NEED HIGH RATIO ROCKERS! :mrgreen:

Use the ARP studs, they will give you better clamping force over bolts.

Seriously, if I listened to everything "I don't need for a street engine" it would just be a stock engine, and not a performance engine...

Do I need ARP studs? perhaps not, but it would really suck to find out i did...

Does a street engine need balanced? perhaps not, but it will run smoother, cooler, and last longer if it is...

Especially when one may have differing goals... In my case, I want a 140-150HP 200 that can run at WOT for 45 min+ hauling a van/cargo up donner pass. This is not a trivial thing to achieve, getting 250HP out of one for 10sec at a time at the strip would be less stressful on parts...

Donner is a long steep grade. According to dyno tests the high lift rockers increase average hp and torque throughout the rpm range.

I did not mention rockers at all, but they are out of my budget... And the turbo will make up for the rockers.

I am going for bulletproof, not powerful anyway. Donner is a long steep grade, and the 200 is going to have to work hard dragging a loaded econoline up it at traffic speed (along with all the other hills here)

btw, the original post was for chad, so he could add these parts to his list.

Well, after a long chat with ARP (they think we are unworthy of them making kits for the small sixes) I did figure out what I need, and where to get it.

the main studs for a 200 are ARP# AP-3.600-1LB available here: http://www.allensfasteners.com/detail.asp?Product_ID=AP-3.600-1LB
the washers are 7/16 I.D. X 3/4 O.D. X .120 THICK and are here (choose correct size in the dropdown): http://www.allensfasteners.com/detail.asp?Product_ID=22246
the nuts (I went with 12-pt) are 7/16-20 12PT NUT WS=1/2 HH=.432 CD=.700 and are here (choose correct size in the dropdown) http://www.allensfasteners.com/detail.asp?Product_ID=67851E

EDIT: corrected washer/nut sizes

RichCreations,

Thanks for the research and post with numbers.

If you're interested, here is a few extra stud kits you may be interested in:

Stainless Exhaust Stud Kit
http://www.ebay.com/itm/261575459714?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT

Stainless Oil Pan Stud Kit
http://www.ebay.com/itm/350788948268?_t ... EBIDX%3AIT

The oil pan kit might be overkill, but the exhaust kit would be worth considering.
I've had a set of stainless steel studs on the exhaust logs of my Corvair for over thirty years, and to this day the nuts just pop loose with a quick turn of the wrench.

They do not say if the exhaust studs are for manifold or header (I suspect header) but I would be afraid to order without knowing. As for oil pan, yeah, that a bit overkill, but would make it easier to get the gasket straight.

These are good sources to have. Thanks.
A turbo should get you up Donner just fine. I remember all those trips I made from Carson up to Tahoe in my 3800 lb Bronco with the 170 and then the 200. The 200 was a little better but still went up most of it in second. At about 30mph. Glad those days are over.

I would be thrilled to be able to do it at 55-60mph... On flat land, the stock engine was plenty fast but not very quick, I don't really feel safe in it over 85mph anyway, so top speed is not part of my goal...

Well, as i am not looking to race this, this likely won't help you, but I am using a T3 turbo from a saab 900, blowing thru a ford CFI throttle body. I plan to run less then 5psi of boost.

I would think a t-3 would be too small, at those boost levels, it will be either overspeed, or well out of it's efficiency range, at least the one I have, which is from a 160HP car...

If you got your Econoline up to 85 that is pretty impressive and a bit scary!. You probably do not have 4:11 gears like my old Econoline pickup had and winding out good at 70.
Yeah life is good now in fourth gear my Bronco will just keep accelerating up that grade but past 70 it is a bit noisy with no floor coverings. Gotta get some mats.
Good luck with your build those Econoline vans have character.

Yeah, I do not know what gears I have for sure, but I suspect 3.00, I can run 2nd gear to 50-55mph getting on the freeway (and unlike most 3speeds I have driven, starting in second is not an option). at 92 (actual fastest I have been in it), it still had a little more, but my balls were just not big enough...

the folks who have done yeoman's service in 'pickin up the pieces' (maintaining this site) of the recent changes have another site that shadows this one. They are testing out their different ideas over there and have some vendor's forums. Hopefully that aspect will generate a reasonable factsimily of a small aspect of what Mike had with his CI sales…

Possibly we can still figure out what co.'s made what parts that he assembled/used/sold us so as to avoid all the testing, searching, other aspects of assembling his "Warehouse". Call me optimistic (as I am ignorant of it all).

With my 1963 4dr Falcon Wagon 200ci I pulled my 14" aluminum boat loaded with crap + 3 passengers from Roseville Ca up I-80 past Donner to Missouri then drove my Falcon 11 years in Missouri. Then I hooked up the boat loaded with crap the mover left and drove 80 mph back thru the Texas panhandle + New Mexico to California in December. That was ten years ago. That was running a 1978 big log low compression head with the early small carb adapted to it + stock air cleaner + 2" exhaust + 3.25 gears. It's fun to floor it a stop light towing the boat and let the low end torque + low gears surprise the newer vehicles. If you have a lot of blowby at idle install a later low compression head. You will be amazed at the lack of blowby. It wont be as powerful but it will be smoother and run better on cheap gas. It's still my daily driver.

The wife had a 1966 Mustang with a 200 ci Sprint Six with a C4 automatic for 14 years. It would go up I-80 to Reno and only one time would it have to kick down into passing gear going uphill. No loadomatic carb-distributor on that engine. Best running 200 ever!


I am putting this in an econoline, with 3.03 top loader, and 9" rear with 3.00 gears, sometimes i tow a 18' boat with inboard volvo (as heavy as the van).

I have a 1969 "M" head, which has the 62cc chambers (low compression) which I won't be milling any more then needed to be flat, but will be adding 5PSI of boost via a T3 turbo.

63falcon4doorwagon- Those are good stories
RicCreations that is a good plan even with 5 lbs boost it should have plenty of power and not stressing the motor. Probably the cheapest hp you can add.

If anyone is still looking, I have the ARP stud kits now. Cast iron and aluminum heads. I can also get bolt kits. The right front will not be the stud type like original though. I may be able to include an extra length stud instead if you guys think it's necessary.

If not main studs... would a set of main bolts from ARP be available?

Hi, I am having a nightmare of a problem finding a main bearing cap bolt for my 1980 Mustang with the 200 cu. in. 6. I see a thread that says the bolts from the 2.8/2.9 v6 work. Am I correct or does anyone have a part # or any info that would help me track on or more bolts down.
Thanks.

I have ARP sets. I will try to get them on the website today, but if not, PM or contact me through the website. I will also have main stud kits in stock soon.

Unlikely- the 2.6/2.8/2.9/4.0 Cologne V6 is a metric engine designed in Germany. I have heard that Cologne rod bolts work, but I have a hard time believing main cap bolts would be shared

Thanks guys, I manged to find a bolt at a wrecker, and the other bolts were fine. The bad bolt was definitely stretched. If I ever do a complete rebuild I will get a full set of studs. The motor has about 100,000 miles on it so I should be good for a while.
However I have a spare 1979, 200 motor, automatic transmission etc. (most of a wrecked 79 Mustang actually) and might just do some mods to it and get a full set of studs. Thanks again.

Can anyone confirm the ARP part number for the 200 head stud kit? The original link above for the head studs points to a main stud kit (152-5401).. I bought ARP-200-HSK from CI a while back but a washer snapped when I was removing the head a few weeks ago and I'm trying to figure out what size replacement I should ask ARP for.

ARP does not make kits for our little engines... CI was putting them together... The main stud kit you speak of is for a whole different engine, but just so happens to work for our heads...

So do you mean that the main stud kit there works as head studs for us as a direct swap? Like you can order 152-5401 from anyone and it works? Or did CI piece together parts from a few kits to make the one they used to sell?

It is my understanding that that main stud kit works for head studs with iron head... though you may need to grind a bit off the front passenger stud, as to not interfere with the water pump impeller (I had to anyway)

X2 yes that's also my understanding too, that a main stud kit can be used with the (144, 170, 200) iron head for a stud kit. But if your going to use the Aluminum head takes a different stud kit / set. :thumbup: :nod:

Just to be clear, the 300 main stud kit, which works for the iron heads, does not work for the mains on a 200...
