I've only reused track pad bolts once and those were on a 977 and hadn't been in but a year or so before the owner needed alot more undercarriage work than just the pads he needed when he got it. Even then I was only able to use about 2/3 of them and had to cut and replace the rest. Like I said that was a one time thing, every other time you might as well plan to cut and replace all of them. That said I know everone else has stressed using the proper torque, but all I've ever done was tighten them with either my 3/4" or 1" drive impact, depending on the size of the bolt, and have never had one come loose. Beyond that, I haven't seen the Swench wrenches mentioned on here in awhile. If you don't have one, get yourself one. The 3/4" drive will give you 750 ftlbs or torque, and the 1" drive will give 2000 ftlbs of torque. That beats even my best IR impact and I've used mine to loosen or tighten some really problematic fasteners over the years.
