Any one with experience with barrell studds getting not so firmly seated, i.e. a play can be detected, a sort of rocking of the studd is possible.
Solutions suggested to me so far are:
* swap engine (bottom end)
* hardchrome the studd threads
* close your eyes - bolt back on the barrells and heads, let it play and pray.
What are the risks / hazards ?
The best answer I have so far "it can be very bad" - exploding engine or ?
