The service manual show you should replace almost all the bolts. Is this really necessary??? I was thinking just using blue Loctite on them and just reusing. I get it if they are aluminum bolts or something, but why would they call for new steel bolts? Anyone remove and install this 1200 engine have any advise?

I agree, if it was mine I would just use the blue loctite and proceed to re-install the bolts.

Thanks, I'll add blue just to be safe. This sled only had 152 miles so I don't plan on having this motor out again.

All external fasteners will be ok with appropriate Loctite. Any other internal stretch to yield fasteners like rod or crank bolts should be replaced with new.

Thanks everyone. I just got the new E module in last night and I'm ready to start putting her back together.
