Default Re: Very FIRST Build. Anything im missing? (PICS)

Hi new guy!

I kinda harp on this but a tap set is needed. The Chinese have a tendency to not tap the holes to the bottom. You also need a beam bar type of torque wrench for the head studs. I use a 3/8ths inch one. Don't trust Torque by ArmStrong. You can easily either pull the threads out of the block or snap the threads off in the block. Blue Locktite them in the block, some will JB Weld. I would JB Weld a stripped out stud hole if I had to but doing it from the start....

Oh, yeah, Sick Bike Parts have replacement bolts and head studs. First mod I did to my bike
