So if a case saver screws out with a stud due to loctite how do you remove the saver from the stud?  I don't mind destroying the saver but don't wanna damage the studs.

Put the stud in a vice, copper jaws so it doesn't scratch it.
Use heat on the case saver on the end of it, it helps break down the loctite, just a butane torch will do.
Vice grips and the case saver is off.

Thanks, I was thinking the same but thought best to ask first.

+1, the loctite breaks down under heat.

I'm just off the phone to the guy working on my case , he's having trouble getting new case savers to go in the auto linea case , think he said its unf threaded.

Anyone got a heads up where I can find the savers i need ? 8mm studs.

I'm having trouble finding these , size is  M8 x 1/2"-20UNF. The usual parts suppliers don't have them. Anyone got any ideas on this please? It's holding up getting the case finished.

I don't see 8mm case savers, but I used 10mm studs and these...

Thanks but I've got nice 8mm studs so prefer to use them . Gotta be a ready supply of these somewhere just need to find them. Other options are redrilling and tapping the case but 12mm od savers would then be loose in the holes, that leaves 14mm od which I'd rather not use.

Yes many people really like using 8mm studs and I don't know why. I was told to get the cheaper 10mm studs as the higher cromo tends to gall up the threads. My engine now has no heads lifting (or leaks) yet after almost 30,000 km (~20,000 miles) with those studs with all kinds of temps including brutally hot and cold too over about 6 years of using it every year.

Looks like these are unavailable anywhere, just off the phone to machinist who's gonna make some out of 1/2 inch unf threaded bar.
What a palaver over something autolinea should have made metric to begin with.
