    Hi Charlie,
    I'm using a set of ARP head studs for my new engine and I have a question. I'm tall filling the block with hard block and installed the studs along with an old head gasket and TFS a460 head to pre-stress the block while it sets up. Not knowing any different I torqued it to 140 lbs. Then I found the instruction sheet that came with the studs. It explained that the proper torque would be 144 lbs w/arp moly lube ( which I used ). It then went on to say that to account for the expansion of aluminum components, one should torque to 115 lbs. My question is, am I ok to pre-stress the block at 140 lbs during the hard block process ( since the engine will be cold ) and then torque to 115 lbs for final assembly? Or do I have it all wrong?

    Thanks in advance,

    Are your valves titanium or stainless steel? The weight of the valves is a factor in choosing the correct spring for you. If they are titanium, then your choices are;

    Manley NexTek # 221449-16
    Comp Products # 98049
    Comp Cams # 26028
    CV Products # PSIDR1249

    They all are 1000+ lb springs and they are not cheap.

    Hope this helps,

    Hi Charlie,
    we have emailed in the past about a 715 CI that i am in the process of building.
    Any how, I am trying to find some valve springs for my application.
    C 460 head 2.20 installed height, 1.645 od.
    Cam is 918 lift and next year i want to install a 950 or more lift.
    I found a broken sping and am wondering if 1 broke, how long till the rest break? Don't want to slap a valve or worse drop 1.
    The closed pressure is currently 340 and 980 open, these are the results that i got from testing them.
    This engine will see a max of 6800 at the other end and shifted at 6000-6400. I am wanting use the softest spring for valve train reliability but realize i need a fairly heavy spring to keep the valves closed with that much lift.
    Anyhow, can i get your thoughts and a price if you have something in mind for a good spring.
