1. Are they unidirectional? And if so, which direction is up? The metal inside of the rubber looks like a normal metal washer with four feet sticking down like a tiny coffee table.
2. Am I over tightening the bolts? My torque wrench is in foot-lbs and the specs in the Chilton's manual say those two center bolts need to be at 96 inch-lbs (8 foot-lbs). I doubt my torque wrench is accurate at that low number, but the metal shavings seemed to be grinding off the valve cover at well below 8 foot-lbs, so something is wrong.
Thanks so much,
I've looked everywhere on the internet and can't find the answer.
have the same problem?
