Testing Head Bolt Stretch

Fel-Pro, ASE Certified Master Technician, John Gurnig explains why you should never reuse torque-to-yield (T-T-Y) head bolts. A head bolt stretch test shows where the bolt will yield when stretched. Once stretched, a T-T-Y head bolt will not return to its original length and, because of this, should never be reused.
