Benzmac, what is the correct spec for the maximum length for headbolts (my '89 300e m103). I've got the head off and I checked in my repair manual. States max length 108.4 mm. I measured all of them and the longest one is 103.5mm. This has got to be a typo, as I can't imagine stretching them to the spec that I have. If you know the correct spec, please let me know. I'm going to replace them, but I just want know what the right spec really is.

Thanks Jeff
