In the world of hot rodding, there are lots of terms that people know and have a really basic grasp of but there’s way more depth to them. Bolt grading is one of those things that people know exists, they know that the “biggest the number better the bolt” type rule exists but do they really know what the grades mean? This video is designed to tell you exactly what bolt grading is and what it means. Narrated by Dave McClelland and delivered in his signature style, it’s a bonus part of an informative piece of work.
This video not only walks you though the identification and explanation of the different bolt grades (both standard and metric) but also the specific things that make a bolt a Grade 5 or Grade 8 and then it compares those ratings to the specs on an ARP fastener.
Basic tech is cool and when you are making your hardware buying decisions, understanding what the right fastener is for the job you are doing can save you time, money, and headaches. There are critical areas of every hod rodding project that require the correct fasteners. This video will help you make the right decisions!
