View Full Version : ARP Main Beraing Studs.......Some Install Questions!

I'm getting ready to put my 94 SC back together and I got ARP main bearing cap studs and rod studs from Bill Evanoff. I already have the ARP head bolt kit installed.

Now there are 4 OEM main bearing bolts that have studs on them that attach the windage tray and oil pump suction tube to the bearing caps once they are torqued. Now I can't put the windage tray between the ARP stud washer and bearing cap surface because the washer and tray hole are similar in size. So as I torque down the cap studs, I would probably tear the tray material, cocking the ARP washer and not get the proper bearing cap torque.

Is anyone using the ARP main bearing studs? If so, how did you mount the windage tray?

I did not get any ARP torque info from Bill. Would some one provide me the correct ARP torque info or is it the same as OEM?

Ed,

I'm using a '94 block in my '90 SC. I don't know who told me, it might have been someone with ARP in California, that you can't use the windage tray if you use the ARP main bearing stud kit. In my case, I used the stock bolts and put the windage tray on.

You can reach ARP in Ventura by calling (800) 826-3045.

Some choose to feed, others choose to teach them to fish. Who are we to cast the first stone?

Another thread that may help. You may want to PM the user that said it was what they were doing to get the final dope on how it worked out.
