These bolts are higher than grade 8 plus they have the flange under the head.

i figured it out using my thread pitch gauge its 1/2"-13[/QUOTE]


The link you provided shows it being a 10mm bolt diameter....not 1/2"

Both the male (External) and female (Internal) threads can be cold formed. We use Roll Taps a lot. But you are correct and I had not thought about that until you mentioned it, haha. Made me wonder about another thing I do not know; Which of the two are stronger - The bolt or the threaded hole?

Re: ARP bolt problem

Rolled thread bolts are stronger than cut threads. Ditto for tapped holes. I gotta say that I hated roll taps though.

Re: ARP bolt problem

Even though youre going with GM bolts, I'd call ARP directly and/or send them a picture.
I would make sure they fix it for the next guy.

Is that package showing the washers on the bolts? I swear I see the washer already on the bolt, but surely not. If you got the washers separate, maybe they are metric and got mixed up.

The Japanese have a good way to insure quality like that; They put the parts together prior to shipping. If you receive the package with the washers on the bolts, you know they fit!

My question was: Which is stronger the male or female, not which are stronger rolled or cut.
