    During assembly reading the manual, it says to replace the main bearing ladder bolts. Have any of you reused them? I thought I had ordered all the parts needed for the piston change but I miss this. Looks like I will be waiting on the bolts to finish the job :banghead:

    Ok, thank you. The manual says nothing about lubrication on the threads when torquing them. They came out kinda hard, dry with nothing on them.

    Also, I went and checked my manual, and it has the warning about using the correct torque sequence, but not the note about the bolts being reused. My manual only says to replace the big end rod bolts.....i dont know which version you have, I have the one by @idk .

    And in the removal section it doesn't say to discard the bolts like it does for the head and rods.

    If the man in the tin shed says you can reuse them I would trust him. If money is burning a hole in your pocket buy new ones. :)

    I feel better now that Lush replied, I trust him about the bolts. I got the manual off ebay last fall. My manual says the same thing about the torque sequence. I replaced the rod bolts and going to install new head bolts...Hope to have it running by next weekend then off to the dyno for a tune....I'm looking for 200hp at the tire...:) 20190407_123713.jpg
