    @GillaFunk, ARP hardware is absolutely top shelf. Do you know ARP sells a thread lubricant and it is so effective at reducing friction that ARP publishes their own torque ratings which are lower than OEM? Otherwise, ARP recommends lubing with engine oil unless the bolt holes are exposed to water jackets or oil galleys in which case you need a thread sealant.
    I've been to your town. Very cool and eaten at Grizzly Grill in Blairsden.

    Something to keep in mind folks is a Service Manual is written for technicians in a dealership, not for the average person. What that means is that the factory included information for the technician to do the job, but they are not always a step-by-step instruction manual. The factory assumed the technicians had the basic knowledge to do the work, but just needed the pertinent information for that particular system.

    Doubly true now that the basic skills we learned from our fathers are almost unknown today.

    But a valuable mental exercise and confidence builder applicable to broader challenges in an uncertain future?

    So, the bolts actually came with lube. However, given that these bolts go through the jacket, I used sealant on them. Which was another component I hadnt thought of until watching engine assembly videos.

    Graeagle is a cute town. I mean, its all retired people and tourists...but.....its quiet and there is a nice community here of full timers.
