FWIW I broke one of those studs once. The engine got hung up on
something and while trying to wiggle it free one of the studs snapped.
At that point the engine/mission fell back into the car and scared the
sh!t out of me. This was while pulling the engine on a non- running
car I'd just bought so I can't vouch for the condition of the studs
I'd probably done the same job a dozen times before on other cars
but ever since I use the front and rear head studs.
