case studs

  1. Aircooled Mechanical Tech
    the head came loose on my split about this time last year, I have had vw's for 20 years and this had never happened before. I just rebuilt my 1641 and after about 30 miles the head has come loose again ! this is a different engine on the split, different heads etc ? has this happened to anyone...

    I was planning to do a light clean and rebuild on a second hand engine but when I undid the heads the studs screwed out of the case. Will it be ok for them to be screwed back in if I use some thread lock or araldite etc? Cheers!
