Yeah, that's an easy one, nip them down evenly as you would any head, then evenly do all five FT using either a normal 3/8 drive rachet or a small breaker bar Smile

No need to get too hung up on torque settings with these engines Smile

The manual simply says:
When replacing the cylinder head or hopper see that
it seats properly and tighten down the nuts progres-
sively a little at a time in order to guard against distor-
toin.

hope that helps, I have recently restored a wd8 so if you get stuck feel free to give me a shout Smile

I just gave mine the same treatment and it's fine, just start from the middle and work out or in a clock wise motion, don't use anything to long like a breaker bar just a ratchet and your strength should be enough.

yep, to clarify when I said "small Breaker bar" I was thinking of my 12" 3/8" drive bar not my 36" 1/2" drive bar Very Happy To be fair though, I just did mine with my 3/8" drive ratchet Smile

Andy it's sometimes difficult to explain and try to say the correct tool, as someone with experience could use a bar without a problem as you get the feel of things, as long as the threads etc are clean you can do it no problemo.

This is what I don't like about typing, its far easier to explain things verbally Very Happy

Its polite to use your tool with restraint the first time Very Happy
lol! lol! lol!

you'll be fine, torque and sequence becomes much more critical the more cylinders sharing the same head, as there is a greater length able to warp, when its just one pot its far less an issue Smile

If you get stuck, you know where we are, have you got some pic's of the engine so we can see what you've got so to speak Smile
