Re: fel pro head bolts question

Anything built since the early 90's has torque to yield bolts in them which is why u replace them. Normaly you put sealer on the bolts that go into the water jacket, and oil on the bolts that dont. I how ever have never done either and have never had a problem. If the bolts already have a sealer on them i would just put them in as is. If they dont or you just want to be safe put sealer on the bolts (atleast the ones that end in the water jacket).
