Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am going to assist you with this.

The torque on the head bolts should be 24.6 - 30.3 ft-lbs.

The torque on the con rods should be 16.3 - 19.8 ft-lbs.

Customer: replied 20 days ago.
The con rod bolts are metric but they are only about one quarter in thick. Does that not seem rather high
Customer: replied 20 days ago.
I have tightened bolts to 50 inch lbs and they seen very tight.That is only 4 ft.lbs. They would break before I got to 16 ft, lbs
