Default Re: Cylinder Stud broken

What do you mean by that?
Twelve foot pounds equals 144 inch pounds. That is within the recommended torque range for the cylinder head fasteners. We usually recommend 120 to 140 inch pounds but there are many who say to go as high as 160 inch pounds.

Yes Sir - and when checking after a few hot/cold cycles, you're checking for looseness not tightness. If loose re-tourqe specs above.
