If you're going to use the ones you have I'd definitely use red loctite as you mentioned. My other thought is that since the bosses weren't machined they were probably drilled and tapped by the dude you got them from. You really want to make sure when you install them that they have a nice tight fit and there's no wobble as you're screwing them in other wise there's a good chance you're going to be pulling a stud out.
    Thanks for the tips.

    Hey Dave sorry I didn’t get back to you today. I was real busy at work and didn’t see your post. I found this typical screw in studs and guide plates. Just a heads up, if you do this setup you need hardened pushrods.

    Too early? Why? OK, I snapped pics of where the studs go into the heads. Thoughts?

    to me the bosses appear to be non machined. In the last photo is the stud bottomed out or just not screwed in all the way? They should be run all the way down to the stop.

    That is the one that was backing out as I loosened the nut. I am just going to cover them in red loctitie.

    When you put them back in it should be torqued.

    The whole lower end was gone through just before I moved. I got the heads separately. My engine guy looked at them and pronounced them good. Only because the screw in studs were out at the time. The heads came off a running corvette. I am surprised they do not have a way to torque them down. Maybe I will set up a jam nut type situation and torque them.
