Interesting question - logical. However, depending on the types of bolts used, this could be an interesting test, or a disaster.

I understand some bolts are designed to stretch at the appropriate torque ... they are actually longer than a new one when removed from the head to block interface.

I have the same basic problem on an old mini-van ... would like to experiment some, but even then ...
