156 twin 2.0

New to the site... I am replacing the head gasket on my pride and joy 156 2.0 twin spark 2001.
Can anyone tell me if I have stretch bolts? will I need new ones?
Will I need a whole new cam kit? or just cam belt and tensioner wheel?

you should be ok with the head bolts,some people will buy new and others will use the old,personally i would go for new and i would also go for a complete belt kit including ballance belt,variator and water pump

Replacing bolts is not necessary, we do on our recon engines but wouldn't normally as part of a head gasket change unless requested to or if one was damaged.

i recently asked this question ,i was going to use my origanel bolts but after cleaning them i found one bolt was fractured so i replaced with new,for the sake of a few quid i would change could be a big headache if it snaps,well thats my 2 pence worth
