Today I installed the valley pan gasket and tightened down the manifold.
After I managed to get all bolts hand tight I started to tighten from the middle and crossing over as I worked my way to the ends. Once I got to the end bolts which are into the block it was way to hard to screw 2 of them down. I was way over spec and stopped. Currently they sit a little proud and the washer spins freely.
Need another full turn. What to do? Leave them, tap holes, pull out the cheater bar and get it done? Thanks!
