im in the process of putting my bottom end back together and i heard from someone that the nuts holding the conrods to the crankshaft journals are a single use and should be replaced.

is this the case/ is it worth doing?

thanks again

Rule of thumb on reusing bolts is, if it's torqued and thats it, reuse.........but, if they are torqued, then turned 'X' amount of degrees, then do NOT reuse.
