Les,

Yes, you can. But it's best if you have a historical baseline measurement for uninstalled and installed length when they were new, so you can be sure there's been no deformation or yielding. They're meant to be re-usable, unlike factory rod bolts, but that doesn't mean that it would be a good idea to reuse bolts that have an unknown history.

They also have very specific instructions about torque and stretch procedures, as you probably know. I have reused mine, and torqued them a number of times to do clearance checks and such.

There's been quite a bit of discussion about this in the Pelican Engine Rebuilding Forum. I suggest you do a search.
