New Head Bolts ? 126 chassis V-8 ? HELP?
I am about to torque my right head after a rebuild (and new head gasket/cam/followers/valve seals/) on my '85 380 SE.all the bolts are in ,but not tight.I was about to torque them,but am now confused about weather I need new head bolts or not because of "Stretching"?Everything came apart no problem,all bolts looked great I cleaned all threads and used motor oil on the threads before I installed them.Do I really need new bolts?Is the problem when I torque them ( thread damage?).Any input greatly appreciated.
