head bolts 190e, 2.3L

head bolts on 1992, 1903, 2.3L, do I need to replace the head bolts when I replace the head gasket or can I reuse them?

102 Head Bolts are TORQUE TO YIELD, which means they TORQUED in DIFFERENT STEPS and then ANGLE ROTATED a certain amount of DEGREES to STRETCH them.

The MANUAL has a SPECIFICATION for measuring them to determine if they are RE-USABLE . . .

If the engine was OVERHEATED . . . REPLACE THEM ALL . . . PERIOD ! ! !

TIP: ALWAYS use the specs on the SHEET that comes with the set, if you're using AFTERMARKET gaskets . . . If you're using FACTORY gaskets, there may NOT be any specs with the set. If so, you NEED to get CURRENT specs, as they've been updated along with the gasket designs . . .

don't have the specs, looking for a manual right now. Ordered new bolts and washers anyhow. Anyone have the torque specs for the head bolts on a 2.3 L 190e?
