Would like some clarification on the assembly procedure in the book. The best that I can understand it, they want the head bolts torqued to 22 ft/lbs, removed, regreased then torqued to 14 ft/lbs + 180 degrees. In order to get the head bolts out, the head must be pulled away from the cylinder and angled a bit for a couple of the bolts to clear the frame. This seems wierd to me and seems to put the head gasket at risk of damage by not returning to the exact same place.
Am I misunderstanding the directions or does it sound like something else may have gone wrong? Would like to get this figured out before the new parts get here.
Any help is appreciated.
