Did you oil the threads on the head bolts when you torqued them?

I belive so, I know rechecked the torque about 10hrs after when I rechecked the valves. What are the odds that head bolts could fatigue? I broke a head bolt on an IH before during the retorque process...

Re-torqued after ten hours of faurly heavy running? Not good, I would have thought. Tightened hot or cold?

Little things like this can catch up with you much further down the line...

Of course bolts can be fatigued, but that is usually due to previous abuse. Any head bolt which breaks at the proper torque was clearly faulty, in my book. Inadequate clamping force is the usual risk.

The retorque wasn't after heavy running, I just checked them since I was in there adjusting the valves (too much clearance being noisy). The engine was warm not hot or cold.
