    Hey guys,

    Are D series head bolts re-usable, or am I supposed to buy all new ones once I've taken the old ones out?

    Thanks

    head bolts are re-usable. you can upgrade if you have the money or are doing a build up.

    never re-use head bolts, you are just looking for trouble.

    i'll agree vtecsir1. I was doing a head gasket in a del sol, and reused the head bolts and broke the second bolt I was on. Now I cannot get the bolt out... Im starting to get really upset and think I will have to buy a new motor, or pay a machine shop to get it out

    Ouch. Let us know what you do about that. I remember someone else on here looking for advice on how to remove half a headbolt. Don't know if he ever got that worked out. Just curious.
