So, would using the original washers that were on the engine work with the studs and nuts? I still have the exhaust manifold 'log' I took off, as well as all the bolts. I assumed this was a stronger, safer bet. Does your set up work as you described by shaving some of the washer down or is it an on going issue?
Coat the coarse threads with anti sieze compound. Get two 3/8 X 24 nuts, screw them on the fine thread end and torque a bit against each other. Then insert into head and tighten with open end wrench 20 lbs torque, approx. Put an open end wrench on each nut, and remove nuts. Repeat 14 x.
Use Mr. Gasket #260 int/exh gasket.
Thank you F-250...
For those of us struggling to find them on their site, you need to call the company (currently these studs are not located on the website)...so you have to order over the phone - 714 657-7442
Also, you might ask about pricing for the bolts. I got the 2 1/8" (# AV09688). They were $2.26 each, or less than $10.00 for a pack of 10. So I just went with two packs of 10 (four of them would be about the same price as 10).
Do these studs work on an EFI engine? I'm getting everything together to install my reman'd head on my 92, would be awesome if I could use these instead of dinking around with the bolts. Thanks in advance.

Will these Studs from Autozone work? I am pretty sure the thread size is 3/8-16 on the old bolts. All my bookmarks and such have been deleted and so I was wanting to make sure if these would work. The price is good and my Local Autozone is minutes away.
The info say they are grade 8, resistant to rust while being 2 inches long.
