  • Stainless Steel bolt kit

    Hi! Does anyone know of anyone offering a stainless steel bolt kit for the 289 V8 for my Hawk? It is finally making some headway and I wanted to dress it up a bit. Thanks Harry

    not to my knowledge, but I started spreadsheet for the purposes of ordering/picking out the appropriate bolts. I got mine from Jerry Forrester and used his part numbers and then-current prices thinking that the idea might take off and he could use it to have people order kits, but the idea never took off. I can email you a copy of the spreadsheet if you like. If you have any unusual accessories you may have to refer to the shop manual (there are a lot of bolt sizes given in there; most of my "research" came from the parts catalog with maybe only 10% of the fitments actually being verified from the car before I ordered.)

    In a lot of places I've found using "AN" style flat washers looks more similar to the original rather than regular SAE flat washers (the AN washers are smaller in OD.) You need the AN washers on the oil pan as the SAE ones don't fit in there nicely. I just bought a couple assortments from Speedway Motors (you need more than one to do a whole engine.)

        ARP sells bolts in stainless and black oxide. There are no specific 'kits' for Studebaker, but the parts book lists the bolt sizes that can be ordered from ARP in cards of 4 or 5. I've order some of the black oxide bolts for my 289 thru the local performance parts house.

          I bought a V8 kit off of eBay last year, and was pretty happy with it. I'm sure they're still available, but unfortunately I can't remember the name of the outfit. I'll poke around and report back if I find it.
