Default RE: Engine question?

ORIGINAL: tfarmer96

i guess what i need is just a header. i have one but i cant find bolts long enough to make it all the way though the block so i can put nuts on it. I need some exhaust bolts that are about 2 1/2 in long.
Muffler bolts are USUALLY 3mm. Get a 3' length of 3mm ALL THREADED rod and some 3 mm nuts. Double nut one end and solder the nuts together. Cut a slot IN THE TOP NUT ONLY. Cut the rod to the length you need - custom muffler bolts. A 3' length of SS 3mm rod costs about $6 - $7 - enough to do many muffler bolts.
