                  I would assume that when you enter in your car year, make, and model, that it would show the parts for your car and your car only!!!

                  I ordered these and was in a hurry to get my car completed. So much for that.

                  They came in the mail and are for Ford 289-302 only

                      part #8552 head bolts for 1988 Nissan Pulsar as listed in on-line catalog are not correct part. 8552 is for Ford motors. Pls change listing. Huge inconvenience to get the wrong part when trying to meet deadlines.

                        I have this listed under a D17A2 engine for my 05 Civic EX. I believe I only have one head... since it's a single overhead cam... yet there are two sets of bolts. Would I need both, and is this compatible with my engine?

                          This will not work work in your Diesel. We do not carry the head bolts for your truck. You will most likely have to go to a dealership for those bolts.
