My Ford service manual does not say anything about applying sealer to the head bolts.

Really? There were a bunch that were rusty when I pulled them out. All on the bottom. That's strange.

I didn't mean to make it sound like I thought you were misleading me rla. I apologize. Just wondering how the rust got on the bolts.

On another note does anyone know what the stock ratio is on the rockers? Is it 1.73?
