    Time for liner orings in one of my dt466's (1987 210hp model). The head has never been off before. Question is, can I re-use the head bolts or must they be replaced? I'm having a hard time finding this particular info.
    Also, do the head bolts on a 466 require re-torqueing after a while? I do practice re-torqueing head bolts on NTC cummins engines and IH idi's just as a 'midlife" service thing and they almost always take another 1/2-3/4 turn to achieve the torque spec. Then they seem to hold for the remainder of the engines life with no head gasket issues. I'm wanting to practice this on a 466 also as a preventative measure. Anyone have thoughts on that?

    Yes the bolts need to be replaced. They are a TTY bolt. They come in the head gasket kit from IH.

    As for a retorque, not required.

    Does anyone know if the heads of the 466 engines used in the TD-15 dozers, are compatible with the on highway vehicle 466 engines? Reason I ask is because, I have a fresh 466 head, new guides, valves, seats, seals, magnafluzed; off of a dozer, would like to put that on my 1988 S1900 466 instead of sending the old head off and waiting ages for it to be re-done.
    Are there any differences that would not allow me to use that head on my S1900?

    To my knowledge if it's from the same generation engine it should be the same.

    Thanks.

    And one more question about this build. Are the rod bolts requiring a "stretch" beyond their 130lbs torque spec? If so, are there any other fasteners that require a stretch?
