What do you mean? Got a pic? I have KMS studs in both the case to cylinder, and cylinder to head. I didnt have any problems.

when the studs are installed the studs stick out one inch to high.. they should have a half inch over the nut but in my case its a total of a inch and half over the nut...

Did you chase the old threads with a cleanout tap? Are you sure yhere was no foreign debris in the bolt holes? Did you lube the threads with either a oil or tourque compound. Any chance these built up in the bolt hole and "hydrolic" the stud?

Wonder if they sent you the correct studs. Is their a difference between the 660 and 700
