Now that I have everyones attention,

I ordered Georges recommendation for the ARP 300-8371 rod nuts from Summit as every vendor showed it as a backorder. Waited two weeks and during that time I was getting the Summit "are you sure you want this backorder?" postcard in the mail.
So I call ARP and asked them about the backorder. They said that they just got the nuts in but I should have ordered 300-8302 as the 8371 flange was way too big to fit.
Well I got the nuts today and Georges 300-8371 are perfect.

Thanks George.

doesn't matter how many points your nuts have, as long as you have the tool to use them.

Actually Blizz, each application has its own requirements ...

But RIDGID tools get the job done most of the time
