83' exhaust manifold studs...

Recommended Posts

All four of the exhaust manifold studs on my 83' wagon (217,000) are stripped out. I currently have some small c-clamps holding things together (how's that for a rig?) The size of the stud that I have left is meteric 10 X 1.25, but it's shot. I'm having a hard time finding some replacement studs. I need to helicoil all of them anyway, so that has to be taken into consideration for size. Autozone and O'reilly's had zilch.

 

Any suggestions on what and where to buy?

 

Thanks

I've done it two ways in the past:

 

1. Go to the dealer and get some. They're not that expensive.

 

2. Make your own studs from bolts. Just cut the head off and use a file to round the end a bit. It's a very common bolt size on these cars...I've always been able to reach into my bolt bin and find one that's the right size.
