Default Poll: Head Studs or Head Bolts?

Hi Everyone. I'm not an engine builder.

Care to tell me anything about using head studs vs. bolts, on say, a 21 stud engine? Or why would it be different on a later vs. earlier engine?

Just curious what the thinking is.

Note: If you choose to vote, you get one vote only. Generally, once you have voted in a poll, you will not be able to change your vote later, so place your vote carefully! The poll doesn't have an ending date.

'BUSYBODY' is more appropriate....

Yep, must be something about this Friday, a lot of post end up with something controversial. I know what I like and use and I know what several others on the Barn like and use. The engines all seem to run ok, so there you go!

I didn't see this as a poll option but I like to mix and match on an engine...couple studs here, couple bolts there...it adds variety and uniqueness to an engine.
