For those who have fitted extractors to your BA or BF, have you reused the factory bolts?

I had a moment when doing up the bolts when I realised the thickness of the factory exhaust manifold was about 2-3mm more than the thickness of the extractor manifold. This could be nothing but the bolts got pretty hard to tur and I don't want to bugger up the head fitting some cheap extractors!!

They are redback brand 3>2>1.

If anyone can answer this ASAP as I was hoping to get it all back together today!
