Our timing cover bolt kit includes all self locking bolts to attach the timing cover to the engine. Large underhead flange ensures the clamping load is spread evenly to minimize gasket distortion. Bright zinc plating helps prevent corrosion. A nice kit at a reasonable price.
Our Performance 12 point bolt kits are a nice looking option that features grade 8 strength, black oxide coating, and with a price that doesn't break the bank. This kit includes all 8 bolts (4 large and 4 small ones) that you need to attach the timing cover to the engine block. Custom matching, small diameter washers are also included with this kit.
ARP black oxide coated timing cover bolt kits are exactly what people mean when they say "show quality." Made from start to finish right here in Southern California, they are forged from aircraft quality 8740 Chrome Moly steel that exceeds the most stringent aircraft quality standards, and are rated at a minimum 170,000 PSI, which is even stronger than a grade 8 bolt! On factory timing cover bolts, the lower 4 are larger diameter than the upper 4, meaning you must change wrench or socket size when changing the timing cover. These are nice because they feature a reduced diameter 3/8" drive 12 pt. hex head on both the large and small bolts, so there is no need to change the wrench or socket when attaching or removing the cover for cam timing changes, etc. Matching black oxide washers are included. Small details like this can really make a car "show quality."
Whenever you order bolts, don't forget a tube of ARP assembly lubricant. ARP's new "Ultra-Torque" is a special new blend of PFTE lube which ensures the correct torque will be reached on the first pull, so there is no longer any need to "cycle" the fastener (or loosen and tighten it several times), which has been the case with ARP's regular "Moly Lube" This lube is essential to get correct torque on the head, rod and main bolts, and it doesn't hurt to put it on misc other engine bolts as well. One tube is usually enough to do 4 or 5 complete engines, so it's a good investment to keep around the shop.
Use our premium Permatex BLUE Loctite on all applications which need to be held in place, but are still intended to be broken loose from time to time. We always use this on certain parts of the engine which tend to come loose occaisionally due to harmonics, even when they are torqued correctly during assembly. Big Block Mopars are famous for this on torque coverter bolts, rocker arm hardware, cam sprocket bolts, etc. We highly recommend it for those applications. One small tube is usually enough to do one complete engine. Made in the USA!
Use our premium Permatex RED Loctite on all applications which need to be held in place near permanently, and you don't expect to need to break loose. One small tube is usually enough to do one complete engine. Made in the USA!
