The car is a 41 Dodge Kingsway. It's a Canadian model. Has a 218ci with the longer 25" block. It's an un-restored car with about 35,000 miles on it. The thing is in very good shape. Looks like it has been parked most of it's life. I picked it up last spring off a guy who had it for a couple of years and only did the brakes and tires on her.
I drove it a lot last year and decided to go through the car thoroughly this winter. When I pulled the head off, I notice an odd head bolt. See the picture below. I included a normal head bolt for comparison. It was in the second position from the front on the driver's side. Looks to be #12 in the tightening sequence. I have not been able to find anything about this. It looks like the motor has never been rebuilt or even apart. Can anyone tell me anything about this piece? I need to replace a few bent/stretched head bolts. Can you replace this one, or should it stay in there?
(Sorry for the poor lighting in the picture)
