Runtoeat Posted January 20, 2017 Report Share Posted January 20, 2017 A couple of questions regarding the new Rotax cylinder head torque instruction. I'm wondering if it might be good to check cylinder head torques next time I have my valve covers removed? My thinking is the torque has probably relaxed over the years and it wouldn't hurt to check this. Should the cylinders be totally loosened or could I just start at the 265 in-lb check and go forward from there? If this is done, can the cylinder heads be re-torqued without loosening the intake manifolds? I would think the re-torquing would not result in any noticeable movement of the cylinder heads so the alignment of the heads to the intake would not be significant. If the cylinder heads are loosened, I would imagine that the intake would need to be loosened and a alignment plate would need to be installed to maintain proper intake/head alignment?
