Can someone help me????
I went to my local ford dealer to get some service replacement type screw in rocker studs(7/16 thread into head, rocker end 3/8 thread with NO hex) for my 66 289 unfortunately their part listing only went back 20 years but he said if I could get a part number he could probably help me.

I had planed to fit them today but spent the entire afternoon trying to chase them down.

Any help would be apreciated

Try aftermarket. I suspect that ARP manufactures a similar stud, but also look at Mr. Gasket's part number MRG-1076 (I think). I think it has the thread specs you need - 7/16-14 in the head, 3/8 for the rocker nut. Summit should have 'em on their website.

I tried the Mr. Gasket studs but had problems with the nuts coming loose. I tried new nuts with little improvement. I tried poly lock nuts, but the studs were too short.

At the end of the day, I pulled the heads, had .125 milled off the bosses (no guide plates needed) and installed ARP studs.

(I hope you did not had tap the holes. I tried that and it was a serious mistake. It was $100 to have straight holes drilled and heli coils installed)
