Telling me that it has a 19mm nut is open to misinterpretation, for example, does the nut require a 19mm wrench?  That is why I didn`t ask about the size of the nuts.  Again, what is the diameter of the headbolt stud?

the four head bolts measure 1/2" in diameter. It takes a 19mm socket to remove the nuts on them.
