Default Re: Torque Specs

There are also general torque specification for fasteners available through many resources on the internet with companies supplying fasteners.

Head bolts are one of the most important things to do correctly! Do them in a prescribed sequence and more steps of increasing to the specified torque is better.
****Remember to follow the Torque procedure if you use a thread sealer or thread lubricant and any extension on the socket used to **adjust your torque values.
This a very overlooked and not published step in most generic, as well Factory service manuals.

WARNING
****Step 4 = Tighten an additional 1/4 turn


The reality with this step unfortunately is too many mistakes that follows most practices of DIY head R&R procedures. IMO **the 1/4 turn should be eliminated completely!
