Pricing: $120.00


Designed by Kinetik Motorsports, this Crank Saver Stud Kit fits all 5.0L Coyote Crankshafts. Made in the USA by ARP using their 2000 Material.

This is a much better design and made of out a much better material. Highly suggest for all 5.0L Coyote's with a super easy installation process. 

Comes with the Stud, Washer, Nut and packet of ARP lubricant. 
Suggested torque is 140-150lbs
Be sure to read instructions listed in the instructions tab above. 
Lubricant under the bolt head and on top of the washer is just as important as lubricant on the threads. 


Kinetik Motorsports Crank Saver Stud Installation Instructions - GT500 and 5.0L Coyote 

Do NOT use the Crank Saver to install crankshaft pulley.  Use the installation tools designated by the manufacturer.

Preparation: (if using in new crankshaft, proceed to installation section)

Remove crankshaft bolt and washer. Removal of the pulley is not required.

Clean inside of crankshaft snout to the best of your ability using WD-40, aerosol brake cleaner, and a bristled brush. (e.g. pipe cleaner or toothbrush)

Any material left inside the snout may prevent stud from fully seating.

Running a thread chaser (M12x1.5) is not required, but highly recommended. An alternative is to remove washer from stock bolt, then fully thread the bolt into crankshaft to clear the lower portion of threads.

Clean and remove any residue from the surface of your crankshaft pulley where the washer will rest.



 Apply a small amount of ARP Ultra-Torque lube to bottom portion of the Crank Saver stud (short side), and thread stud into the crankshaft by hand.

Ensure the stud is fully seated using the 4mm Allen, but do not torque. If fully seated, the top portion of threads will begin just below the face of the crankshaft snout.  If you meet resistance before the stud reaches that point, DO NOT try to force.  The most common reason for this is residual thread locker and/or dirt in the lower portion of threads, where the current bolts do not reach.  Remove the stud and return to preparation section.

Liberally apply ARP Ultra-Torque lube onto the flange and threads of the nut and top side (nut side) of the washer.  Install washer, then thread nut onto stud by hand.

Torque using a 12-point 16mm socket.  Recommended torque: 140-150 lb-ft

Tip:  Place transmission in gear and firmly apply parking brake to prevent engine spinning while torquing.
