i would replace the head bolts now.don't wait until the corrosion causes the corners to round off,if that is not already the case.the problem with those bolts is you can't use a 6 point socket on them which really helps with rounded corners.900 head bolts don't have that problem 6 point socket works fine on them.and the early 1000 -'76.

Thanks. Any idea if those can be bought other than 12 point?
And any pointers when replacing to avoid issues down the line.

Also, for that 3/16 vac hose idea on the oil lines, think I can I cut down a silicone fuel line of that diameter?
