fasteners

Fasteners are used all around a vehicle, and on the engine,in order to hold crucial parts together. These fasteners are designed for many different applications and come in a variety of different shapes and sizes. It is common for the fasteners on a vehicle to get torqued which will ensure a proper tightness. A bolt that is not tight enough can loosen itself or cause a leak, and a bolt that to tight can break or cause threading issues when going to unscrew it or when putting in a new fastener. Some fasteners that are used on a vehicle are recommended to be replaced after there initial use because of bending that may have occurred when they were first torqued. A reused fastener that is bent can cause a lot of headache when maintenance a vehicle and can cause other parts in the vehicle to fail.

Engine Block Main Bolts & Studs

Main engine block bolts and studs play a key role in the structural integrity of the core of an engine. The purpose of using a bolt or stud is to secure the cylinder head to the block which in turn, secures the crankshaft. Most engines that see everyday use in personal vehicles will come equipped with bolts instead of studs. The advantage of using a bolt is that they are easier to install and remove, and they don’t require as much disassembly of the engine to be removed. Studs are used to do the same thing as bolts but they add strength and reliability which makes them highly used in powerful engines. Since studs are not tightened into the block to be secured like a bolt would, they don’t have that added twisting strain. This means that they are more likely to stay tight and prevent leaks or breakages that may be seen when using bolts in high performance applications. Continue Reading -->

Engine Connecting Rod Bolts

Connecting rod bolts are extremely strong bolts that hold the connecting rod to the crankshaft. These bolts have to be so strong because the crankshaft is moving so violently that it is constantly pushing and pulling on the connecting rod. To withstand these stresses, the bolts are usually cold rolled after heat treatment which makes them more resistant to fatigue. The material used to make these bolts is usually alloy or carbon steel which is extremely resistant to bending, cracking, or becoming brittle. Continue Reading -->

Engine Intake Manifold Bolts

Intake manifold bolts are used to secure the intake manifold onto the block of the engine. It is crucial that these bolts are tight and fit properly so that there is not any leaks which may cause a loss of performance or even damage to the engine. Intake manifold bolts come in many different sizes to accommodate for the different sized blocks and intake manifolds out on the market. The heads of these bolts are also made into different sizes which allows for easier installation when having to install them in tight spaces. A washer is also used with these bolts which allows for optimum clamping pressures. The washer will also help distribute the clamping force evenly among the surface area of the intake manifold were the bolt is located. Continue Reading -->

Engine Oil Pan Studs

Oil pans can be attached to the engine block in many different ways. The use of studs to attach the oil pan is undoubtedly the most secure and proper way to attach it. These studs come in many sizes to fit the wide variety of oil pans out on the market. Studs are extremely popular in high performance engines that need constant maintenance because they allow the oil pan to be removed quickly without running the risk of doing damage to the block due to excessive tightening and loosening of a bolt. The stud allows for a more convenient and fast installation of both the oil pan and its gasket. Since this area is so prone to oil leaks, the oil pan may be removed allot which is why a stud is much more preferred. Continue Reading -->
