    Default DS head bolts

    I'm in the process of changing the head gasket on my D. One thing that surprises me is all of the bolts have 14mm heads, except two of the shorter ones which are 13mm A/F.

    Is that normal, should the 13mm headed bolts go in a particular place? They're all M10x1.5 but I was imagining they should all have the same size heads?
    Cheers, Marc.

    I've just checked two sets of head bolts that I have. All have 14mm heads. The parts manual for later cars (648) just lists two types being used - being distinguished only by length: 8 long bolts and 9 shorter bolts. No mention of any of the 17 having smaller hex. heads.

    Thanks for clarifying Budge, I thought it was pretty odd.

    Maybe the two odd bolts are from another engine, but they'll do the job when I put it back on.
    Cheers, Marc.
