Torqueing down the exhuast bolt flange

Recommended Posts

I tend, I think, to overtighten this. I noticed that my current exhiast bolt flange that conect to the head is slightly bent from being tightened down. On one hand, I thought it was supposed to be really tight to prevent leaks, but Im guessing its not suppose to be so tight flnge bends. Guess I should check the torque value huh.....

Happens all the time to me. I seriously think its almost un-avoidable. Ive done it on so many flanges even when tourqing in down evenly on both sides simultaniously.
