Hi All

is there any specific sequence I should be using when tightening / installing my rocker cover ? And torque ?

also, is there any specific torque that should be used to install the corner b bolts ?

Thanks
Denis

Usually I just go from inside to out and/or opposites. I nip them up comfortably tight with a ratchet, not cranking them with loads of power as they will easily strip! just make sure you don't see any leaks around the edges too

That’s great advice. Thanks for that!

And what about bolting the b bolts to the head (not the rocker cover) . Is there any specific torque that needs to be used for this?
