could the parts guy have tried to sell me gasser head bolts?
are the gass ones a little shorter..say bout an inch?
(torx like head not allan)
thanks for info..feeling a little less stressed tonight :o)
11mm bolts are all the same, hex head, 11 x 1.5 pitch I believe and about an
inch or so of threads. 12 mm bolts are threaded all the way. I think the
pitch is .25 different than the 11mm bolts. The washers come with them
as I recall. Only one length available.
There are basically three heads up through the 1.6 engine. 1.5 head which
has the small bolt holes and small oil return holes. '81 1.6 engine which
has large bolt holes and small oil returns. 1.6 head which has large bolt
holes and large oil return holes. Oh yeah then there's the hydraulic
head. Different oil returns, and oiling to the lifters.
