Not so.  Manifold and water pump bolts on the Austin B-series engines 
are the same size as the rocker cover studs (5/16-inch), and those 
horizontal bolts would be loaded sideways for lifting rather than in 
tension.  Lots of people use the rocker cover studs for lifting with 
no problem.  In fact I don't recall ever hearing of anyone having any 
problem with the strength of those studs for lifting, so I suspect 
any advise to the contrary is just superstition.
