Stretch Bolts Warning
Also, a good reason for a 'common' forum for all slant/4's?
For those of you that are inclined to replace, paint, etc. various bolts on the slant/4 here is a dire warning. I recently learned about 'stretch' bolts (apparently all bolts stretch to various degrees upon tightening) but some of the bolts on the slant/4 are of aluminum and are to be replaced everytime.
I don't know which ones, but I was interested in painting some of the bolts for aesthetics and found this info on another website. I was informed there is a tech bulletin on this . . . I guess, just be careful.
