  • Valve cover

    I need to know what the torgue foot pounds is to tighten the bolts for the valve cover when I put my new gasket on, it's a 304.

    Thanks,
    TC

        Leakage

        Bret is right, torque is sometimes meaningless--tighten by "feel." That's my experience, not much to begin with, if it leaks, retighten. Better to have a little oil leakage and cleaning than to replace the gasket again.
