    Head Studs on or off for bore job?

    I'm planning on taking my JS550 cylinder in to the shop today to have it bored to 1mm over stock. Should I remove the studs from the head surface before I bring it in, or does it not matter?

    Thanks,

    Steve

    They need to be removed. The shop will do it if you don't have the means.
