cylinder head screws
I want to replace my cylinder head gasket - do I also have to replace the screws or can I reuse the old ones ?? (are this normal screws or stretch screws ??)

Its always best to get new BOLTS. They are coated with a special loctite stuff from the factory, and obviously will wear off by taking them off and the heat they go through.
You wouldnt want the head gasket to fail again becuase you didnt replace the bolts.
