    Piece of Garbage. First bolt broke

          Comments about Felpro Head Bolt Set:

          TRIED to install this 99 Chevy Tahoe 5.7. Spec says torque 22 ft lbs, 45 ft lbs and 65lbs. First bolt broke on second pass at 45 ft lbs. I thought it was my brand new torque wrench so I compared with my beam torque wrench and they match. I tried tightening another bolt just to see and that too started stretching and luckily I stop as soon as I heard a cracking noise and the bolt started turning easy. I checked that bolt after I back it out and it was about to break off. You get what you pay for. I like Fel Pro but I think I will stay on gaskets only.

            Used these on a head gasket replacement and they worked great, already had the sealant applied to the treads on all the bolts.

              I used these on a fresh over haul, and they are as good as original equipment. You just need to make sure that you chase the threads before installing them as with any new head bolt to prevent breakage.

                Bolts were fine up to 50 lbs/ft, when torqued to 65 lbs/ft you could feel them stretch. Of course one broke, all the store will offer is a refund, which won't make you feel any better when you're taking the head back off and trying to get the broken bolt out of the engine block.....

                  DONT BUY FEL-PRO HEAD BOLTS!

                  By HAAS

                  from Dunn, NC

                  Comments about Felpro Head Bolt Set:

                  When installing head bolts you torque to yeild in 3 step increments. My head bolt application is 65 foot pounds torque starting (25)FP to (45)FP and (65)FP of torque. THESE PEICES OF GARBAGE BROKE OFF AT 40 FOOT POUNDS. STAY AWAY FROM FAIL-PRO HEAD BOLT'S, ARP IS THE WAY TO GO.

                      A:

                      I am showing the torque for the connecting rods to be 50 ft. lbs. but in some instances it can be more. I am showing the inner main bearings to need 70 ft. lbs. and the out to need 65 ft. lbs. Once again, I recommend consulting a manual before any repairs are made to verify these numbers.

                      A:

                      I am showing the torque to be 65 ft. lbs. I would first consult a manual before you actually torque them down to verify.
