Head Bolts

Can I mix head studs and head bolts on an engine?

On my engine (a 1951 flathead v8), some of the head bolts also fasten the oil filter canister to the engine. The are extremely difficult to torque down because the canister gets in the way. For the 3 bolts that hold down the canister, I'd like to use studs which are a little longer, torque them down, then add extra nuts on top which would hold the canister down. Is mixing studs and bolts like this a bad idea?

Thats what I used to do back in the days!
