ARP main stud to lower crankcase clarence issues... and how i solved it

While rebuilding my 02 zetec engine I replaced my main bolts with ARP main studs which are wayyy stronger, when doing so even with the correct ARP part used you will run into major clarence issues. I'm currently getting my camera fixed so it will connect and so I can make a step by step of how I fixed it also id like for other people to include how they fixed it... this will help anyone who builds the 2.0 engine in the future. Also for those who think you can reuse ur old main and rod bolts you shouldnt as they are a torque to yeild style bolt that should be replaced everytime.
