Thanks, Tom. I think the head bolt are down to 2 or 3 bucks apiece now, so I can see why someone would just replace them all, but if you have the means to measure them accurately, and they are all in spec according to the FSM, I don't see the issue with reusing. Why toss perfectly good bolts? If someone's got a compelling reason not to reuse them, I'm all ears, though.
