Can anyone tell me if the head bolts are torque to yield bolts or can I reuse the old bolts? Thanks for any help and replys

it should say in a Chilton's manual whether you have to get new ones or not.

You can re-use the bolts. Just make sure the threads are clean and torque them in 3 stages.

I think you are going to have to go directly to Frankenstein for this one. Just kidding. What they said is right.

Thanks for your replys. I wasn't sure because the guy at the ford store told me that I needed it when I was pricing a head set. After I got the head off today I saw the bolts and realized that they were reusable. I thought they had to be re-torqued after 500 miles.

I thought that they would have to be re-torqued aswell. But then I heard from someone that you didn't. So I never did. That was umm... 8,000 miles ago. I han't has any problems yet.
