The 2000 manual has fastener cautions on page 7. In 2 different sections on the page.
The only other caution I can think of is to tell you to only use torque to yeald head bolts on the engine. They need to be replaced every time they are removed.
The 2000 manual has some differences to the 2002 manual. That's why I would like to see what that special notice is. It might be in reference to TTY bolts that are permanently stretched, or maybe not, but I would sure like to know for certain. It's very confusing. Here's why:
In the 2002 manual for some service instructions, the manual clearly states (remove bolts, discard bolts). In particular, I observe this in the instructions for the flexplate, and for the head bolts. Therefore, one can clearly surmise that these bolts are permanently stretched and must be replaced. However, on other bolts that I have understood to also be TTY (rocker arm bolts, crankshaft dampener bolt), etc, the instructions for disassembly do not explicitly include a notice to discard bolts. Yet on reassembly instructions, there is a reference to the special fastener notice caution (same as on the flexplate, head bolts, etc.). So what exactly is that "caution"? Could it be to examine bolts? Or is it a blanket caution to replace bolts, and if so, why the inconsistency of explicit discard bolts step for flexplate and head disassembly but not for the crank and rocker arms? This is important to know because the crankshaft bolt is now obsolete and discontinued, and NO aftermarket sources are available for this bolt. I have checked for a very long time, can't find anywhere, and the dealer confirmed to me that this bolt is discontinued.
Without a choice, I plan to reinstall my old one but nevertheless, it's something that I'm really itching to know.... exactly what this this special fastener caution mentioned in the 2002 f-body manual?
Attached are samples of what I'm talking about. On one page, you can see where it tells you to discard the flexplate bolts. Also, for the heads, you can see on disassembly, it says to discard the bolts. On the reassembly step, it tells you to install NEW bolts. That's clear enough. Note that on the reassembly step, it says to refer to the special fastener notice on page 0-0. The confusing part is that the crankshaft and rocker arm steps do not say the same (discard bolts, install new bolts) but still mentions referring to the same special fastener notice. I'm understanding (from forums) that those also are TTY bolts.
