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.
