Default Re: Estimating 89 inch lbs without Torque Wrench (Valve Cover Gasket replacement)

Its temperature dependent. If its in the 70s 10 minutes is plenty. Lower temperature means longer. When you touch it and it does not stick to your finger its about there. Put it on the head and a test gob on a board. When you can poke at it and its like a water balloon its skinned. Poke gently.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
