5.0Resto's water pump and timing cover hardware kit is manufactured by ARP exclusively for us here Late Model Restoration and is a direct replacement for your factory hardware. The hardware is made of 8740 chrome moly steel and are nominally rated at an 180,000 tensile strength. Which is a fair margin sturdier than a standard Grade 8 bolt, and significantly stronger than the factory studs and bolts.
This hardware is available in two different kits; timing cover specific kit, or the timing cover and water pump can be purchased all together for those of you doing a complete overhaul or re-build.
