In Chilton Manual #28200 on page 3-28, ENGINE AND ENGINE OVERHAUL:
"On 1996-99 vehicles, the head bolts are designed to permanently stretch when tightened. The correct part number fastener MUST be used when replacing this type of bolt. Never use a bolt which is stronger in this application. If the correct bolt is not used, the parts will not be tightened correctly and component or system damage may occur."
Since our Bonneville is a 1995
, and the Manual doesn't mention replacing the head bolts - SHOULD WE REPLACE THEM ANYWAY or can the old head bolts be used?
