I have yet to find any Specific Info on Torque specs, or Tightening sequence on any of the Engine bolts.
I would think something with such tight tolerances and such high RPM's would have some Torque specs or at least tightening sequences to keep form Warping the head.
So my question to those whom have been doing the Nitro R/C Stuff for some time and have rebuilt their
engines do you have a specific Tightening sequence on the head bolts? IE do you do cross tightening like
make a star pattern? How tight do you torque the bolts? go to snug then say 1/8th turn more?
Do you use Thread locking (Blue) compound?
Last thing I want to do is warp the head or strip a bolt or have one vibrate loose.
I would think at the factory they have to have some specs on this stuff.
I doubt it woudl be in Ft/Lbs but possibly in In/Lbs.
