Had an interesting discussion at a club meeting about the ability to re-use head bolts. I was under the impression that once you used them and torqued them that they could be re-used. I'm I correct? Specifically I'm taling about f,2f,3fe motors.

I reused mine.

I've heard the 2F head bolts are not "torque-to-yield" bolts.

Technically most the Cruiser head bolts are "stretch bolts" and should be replaced after the second time you use them. But.......... no one ever does, I would re-use them too. :cheers:
