Cylinder head bolts - what socket, spline?

Post by Rob Furniss » Sat Oct 08, 2016 3:03 pm

Was about to take the heads off but I noticed the bolts are a bit different.
Are they torx or spline and I presume they are M10 as an M10 hex socket wouldn't go on but an M11 hex would but was loose due to the type?
They didn't have any singles or sets of either in Autopro or repco up here so going to have to order some.

There are some allen key bolts on the heads too right at the bottom, does anyone know what these are for?
