Volvo Penta KAD42P-A

Would like know how many times you can reuse the headbolts

Thank you, 



By the manual you are not supposed to use the headbolts more than once.  You have to stretch them a certain amount of degrees at the end of the tighting sequence.
So you should purchase new head bolts.  However, I have seen some people use them a second time.  It is not recommended, but certainly not more than twice.
The new bolts (27 of them) are $8.03 each (part number 838778).
Hope this helps.
