    Im replacing the head gasket in my 91 HF and I was advised that it would be a good idea to replace the head bolts while im there so they wont snap in any future repairs. I have been trying to find a set but no local shops have them and Honda wants 13 bucks a piece! any websites that still sell sets? or maybe a set for another engine might work with mine? (it is a honda...)

    If you are going to be investing in tearing the head off alot put your money into some ARP Head Studs...you can reuse those like 5 times and they will still keep thred and what not....go to summitracing.com they are around 90.00 good investment becuase you can reuse them unlike honda ones where after you torque them you HAVE to trash them after you take them out.
