The machine shop has determined that the mains are slightly out of round and will need to be align honed. The only problem is they need to remove the head studs to put it in the machine and are going to be charging 140 an hour for labor.
So, my question for you is this, has anyone had any experience removing head studs & how long should it take? The block has been hot tanked and cleaned recently so at least the tops of the studs are not rusty but I’m not sure if that means the bottoms should be relatively easy for them to pull out. Any help helps.
