Hi guys, i pulled the head off my car and was wondering if its ok to re use the head bolts. They are the stud and nut style ones not the standard type so not sure if these stretch like the standard type.

If i need to purchase some new ones where can i get these from?

Thanks

Studs are not typically TTY. They should be fine to reuse. Unless TTY studs were used (rare though)

Studs are there for 2 reasons, "easier" to do head gaskets and reusable.
