Bentley is garbage. The original German says that head bolts can be
reused _ONCE_. This critical word has been lost in translation.
The problem you face, standing in front of your engine, is: Has someone
else reused them already?
Hence my advice (and the UK Club's advice): Renew the head bolts each
