Re: bolt replacing when head removed??
Chainging bolts is not over rated. THe head of the ea-el bols snap of without warning there a faulty bolt, the head of this bolt can go into youre timing gears and fuk ya motor has happend before. Never seen an au head bolt snap, and ive done 40-50 head gaskets, seen heaps of ea-el ones, most common cause of gasket fault is the head bolts shitten em selfs
THe design of the au bolts is fine if u are using decent tools and keeping the socket square on the bolt, a good single hex impact socket is fine. This has been covereed many times so its up to u
