82' and 83' head bolts are not suppose to be TTY. So is it safe to reuse them?

Replace them. Better yet. Replace them with headstuds. Either way I would never reuse headbolts. That is just asking for trouble

This is what I read on the other diesel site, quoted by the main man.

"1982-83 6.2s came from the factory with standard type head bolts that were torqued in 2 steps, first to 88 ft/lbs, then to 103 ft/lbs."

None of the books I have, show a different sequence for those years. The 82 I rebuilt looked like TTY bolts, but who's to say they were original

I was just curious. I'll play it safe and use new TTY bolts. I see no need for studs as this engine will stay N/A and be driven rather easy.

Thanks

Use new bolts,no doubt about it.Don't forget to apply sealer on the threads before you install them.
