Head Bolt Lengths was created by twright3
As we know the stock head bolts have unusually thick heads. They are expensive but can be replaced with easily available bolts if they are of sufficient strength. The original look can be approximated if the strength pattern on the heads are carefully machined off and they are trimmed to the correct lengths listed in the manual. My question is: Do the lengths listed in the manual include the head or are these lengths just for the shaft/threaded part? And if the lengths include the heads, how thick are the stock heads?

On any bolt, the thickness of the head is never included in the measured length. Hope this helps you find what you are looking for. I'm located about 80 miles north of you. If you need me to look at something I can drive down most any time.
