  4. No it’s not cross threaded! The threads are actually sheared, flattened or a form of galling! Several thing can cause this. When rebuilding or just replacing certain components of an engine it needs to be cleaned, thread chased and deburred very well. Anything and I mean anything can mess up threads! When you chase threads you blow out the holes really well, but you should use a chamfering tool at the top of the thread first then chase the thread. Likewise all the clearance holes need cleaned of carbon so running a corresponding drill through then will do wonders, but again chamfering the top

  12. I have no answer for ya. Only way I could see that happening would be streach from overtighten, but that usually happens on the non threaded part.

  15. No that’s not a stretch bolt! That’s a thread problem! Something somewhere is shaving the thread! A stretched bolt is detected by measuring the bolt length.

  16. Good catch on the bolts. That's why ARP is such a trusted name in the automotive world.

  17. UPDATE: So I got ready to start reassembly last week and while cleaning the head bolts I found 2 of them that looked bad to me. I think this is what they mean by stretched? The bolts are ARP and were put in brand new right before we had the valve breaking issues. I reached out to ARP to ask about warranty and to no surprise they were not under warranty. I told the ARP guy exactly what happened and that I knew it was not their fault and I was only asking before ordering the 2 new ones. They actually still sent me 2 brand new ones no charge and no shipping. That was a surprise. So huge shout out
