    Hi everyone, building a 350 for my 80 Z28. Picked up some new head bolts and read somewhere they are torque to yield bolts and install differently than regular head bolts. Now I believe I put these same style bolts in my 73 few years ago without knowing the were the TYY bolts. Anybody know anything about this?

    Not sure what head bolts you bought, however TTY bolts are not req'd for a rebuild on that 350 block.

    Oh sorry, they are Felpro. Gottem at Advance. This isnt race motor or anything, just around town driving. I guess what I am asking is, if I used them in my 73 with a 350 and havent had a problem yet and I torqued like reg specs of standard bolts, what is big difference in them?

    Simply stated they are designed to be used once then discarded. To achieve proper torque they actually have to stretch a certain amount. If it was me I would return them and get a regular set of good old SBC bolts. Surely Fel Pro offers them. (ES72856) You need two sets for 1 engine.
