You're very welcome. I'm thinking about re-doing them with a cautionary note on the torque value for the drain plug!

I think 12-15 lb/ft is good if the surface, washer, and bolt are good and clean and the washer is new.

Thank you Tom for a wealth of knowledge in one easy to locate spot. If I may, there was one error that I found. The intake valve clearance should be .004-.008, not .0004-.008

Caused by a sticky 0 key no doubt. Thanks again.

I put these on my garage wall in lieu of naked ladies.

The specs are more important.

I've never adjusted my doo with the engine idling. Great piece of info!

I have never adjusted the balancer chain that way. Don't know if it is a good idea or not.
