These bolts are not torque to yield. Hard to explain but in any case? replacing the bolts are not required , If? you feel more comfortable? and you can get the bolts? then I would change them while there BUT.. not required. I have attached a large .pdf file showing rebuild information that also contains torque specifications. Hope this helps

Please give a rating for my service provided, after which you can return with any followups at no add'l fee. Thanks
