Quoting Removed, click Modern View to see

Re-torque is absolutely necessary in my opinion. I had a ton of direction from the pro's on here when I did my head gasket awhile back. I ran mine until it was up to temp and then re-torqued. I got between an 1/8 and a 1/4 turn more on every head bolt before the torque wrench let me know I was at spec..

i look at it like this.

it's too east to NOT retorque them after warming.

I even use the fel pro head gaskets that say you don't have to.. and I still do.

havn't lost one yet..

I guess it depends on how much time you want to spend on it. Lots of those straddle tractors with loaders are NOT easy to work on so it's not exactly easy to go back and re-torque... In fact it's a pure poison misery job. So you torque them once and move on. I've never lost one yet from not re-torqueing... so our records are about equal. lol

Thats right! And it seems there always is a little more gained on at least a couple of bolts.
