    Totally Stainless has the studs that the Dorman #23744 have (I have a couple sets of these if anyone is interested).

    For my 1993 5.0 w/ accessories, I ordered two part numbers from Totally Stainless:

    6-0897 (Engine Kit) & 6-9029 (Stud Bolt Kit for 302 SBF EFI Water Pump)

    This comes with:

    Intake Kit (6-0585)
    Valve Cover Kit (6-0504)
    Stud Bolt Kit (6-9029) & Water Pump Kit (6-0592)
    Timing Chain Housing Kit (6-0844)
    Thermostat Bolts (6-0588)
    Distributor Hold Down Bolt (6-0532)
    Oil Pan Bolt Kit (6-0522)

    The Water Pump Kit (6-592) worked perfectly, studs and all. It actually had a long bolt and two shorter ones left over and I run full accessories (A/C and P/S). They fit great and look even better. Total cost was $83.35 and it took about 3 weeks to get to my door, which is normal for them.

    Here are some other part numbers that have worked on my 1993 5.0L:

    ARP-154-1001 - ARP Camshaft Bolt
    ARP-450-1702 - ARP Distributor Stud Kit
    ARP-150-2501 - ARP Harmonic Balancer Bolt
    ARP-154-4001 - ARP Head Studs for AFR 185's (need bolt spacers)
    ARP-154-3601 - ARP Head Bolts for AFR 165's (or similar)
    ARP-400-1414 - ARP Header Studs (stainless @ 3/8-16)
    ARP-400-1110 - ARP Header Bolts (3/8-16 x 1")
    ARP-400-7606 - ARP Valve Cover Studs
    ARP-100-2801 - ARP Flywheel Bolts
    ARP-200-2802 - ARP Flywheel Bolts (slightly stronger strength)
    ARP-450-3501 - ARP Starter Bolt Kit
    ARP-100-9904 - ARP Thread Sealer
    STG-8953 - Stage 8 Locking Header Bolts (3/8-16 x 1")
    23744 - Dorman Motormite (Water Pump Stud Kit)
    FMS-M-6397-A302 - Ford Pressure Plate Bolts
    397-M-6397-A302 - Ford Pressure Plate Bolts and Flywheel Dowel Pin Set

    Also, a few months ago 50resto.com (latemodelrestoration.com) came out with a full and accurate timing cover and water pump stud/bolt kit for $80.

    I have a ton of other random part numbers, but not bolt specific.

    ********What are some of the various BOLTS, NUTS AND STUDS on the Stang that you would recommend replacing with STAINLESS?

    I'm going to be putting back a lot of fasteners and would just as well do it now.


    whoda thunk it! Good Thread...

    Actually, 5spd GT did a very good job of what you are asking about. I would follow his plan, since he seems to have covered most of the bases.

    Thanks for the input on this question.

    I never really thought about changing out these fasteners to stainless. I did notice that the old ones were a bit pitted, not too bad as my car has been garage kept with 45K., but I plan to keep it outdoors a lot more in the future.

    I'm going to check out 5spgt's thread to see what will work for me. I''ll report back with what I end up replacing out and from where...
