A-series head bolts are designed to be reused; they are not Torque-To-Yield (TTY) bolts.

Better to use the GX '13' center bolt, which is high-tensile chromoly V steel

"13" bolts were first used on the twin-carb A12GX Engine, as opposed to single-carb engine bolts. "13" bolts can be used with any early engine (they are simply stronger than the earliest bolts).

Note that A12/A12A/A13/A14/A15 all may use the '13' bolts, but the center bolt differs between early engines and late engines.

Center bolt 11057-H5000 and 11057-H5700 are interchangeable
