  Sounds like something that "fits" has been used, maybe by 
someone that didn't like stretch bolts.  I believe stretch bolt 
are all full-thread so that would make then non stretch.  Maybe 
they're stock bolts from a fastener supplier, maybe they're from 
another engine.  They were too long so spacers were used to 
keep them from bottoming out.  Someone went to a bit of trouble 
measuring and figuring to use a substitute bolt.
