ACCEL Performance Group, a performance auto parts manufacturer of brands including Mr. Gasket, ACCEL, ACCEL Motorcycle, Hays, Lakewood, QuickTime and Prestolite ProConnect, have introduced its latest innovation for automotive enthusiasts and racers,Mr. Gasket HeadLock Header Bolts.
Mr. Gasket’s HeadLock header bolts eliminate the need for lock washers when installing header exhaust. Instead, the innovative patent pending design incorporates 24 serrated teeth into the flanged hex/socket head, each equally spaced, designed to grip and lock onto the header flange, maintaining consistent fastener clamp-load.
In addition, the new header bolts also incorporate a unique Thread-Lock Patch that provides positive thread engagement. It is a pre-applied, high-temperature thread lock coating fused to the bolt threads, making it self-locking and self-sealing. The Thread-Lock Patch is also chemical resistant, reusable and provides positive thread seal, resists engine heat cycling and vibration that often loosens conventional header bolts.
Mr. Gasket HeadLock header bolts also feature a combination hex and socket head design for ease of installation in tight spaces. Also, includes a hex key socket tool to start installation of header bolts into cylinder head mounting bolts.
Available for a variety of domestic applications, including AMC, Chevrolet, Chrysler, Ford, Oldsmobile and Pontiac, each HeadLock header bolt is made from high-quality 300 Grade 8 Stainless Steel to resist rust/corrosion and crafted with a bright polished finish to maintain a clean professional engine compartment.
