Tightening procedure help

Recommended Posts

While installing some hi-way pegs on my 04 RT, am I understanding the manual correctly that when tightening down the cylinder head bolts I am to tighten down the bolts to an initial torque of 20nm, and then go beyond a 180 degrees(half a turn?) then slacken and retighten to 40nm? confused.gif

Wait!!!!!! You should be looking at valve cover torques, no? And they are just a fraction of that. Something like 8nm (but look it up), just above finger tight. Those things are notoriously easy to strip. And if you're using head torque settings, it ain't going to be pretty. smile.gif
