how to torque head bolts

I've got the head off my '01 WR426 with the case still in the frame. When I try to torque the camshaft holder back in place, my torque wrench hits the frame. Does someone know of a smaller wrench that will fit? I'd rather not pull the engine out.

A 1/4" torque wrench fits fine.

Be sure any torque wrench you use, the value is above 20% of the minimum and 20% below the maximum rating of the wrench. Also on small fasteners, the wrench must be of high quality. If not, you are better off doing it by feel.

Nice U2 self pic!

Nah...not a self pic (though I would cut off body parts for a ride in the back seat of a two holer)...
