Head Bolts

I am getting ready to purchase a set of aluminum heads for my 42U. Can someone tell me what the difference is between the bolts for iron and aluminum heads?

Re: Head Bolts

The headbolts for aluminum heads have an extended head on them to make it easier to reach them with a wrench to tighten. Threads, length of threads, same as iron head headbolts.

Re: Head Bolts

I have a brand new, never used set of S&S aluminum heads that I am not going to use.

PM me for more info if you are interested.
