Hello all; I'm just about to do the first 500 mile service on my 45 flathead. Just wondering, is there a need to re-torque down the heads. There is no leakage any where, and if its not broke, I like to leave it alone. Page 241 of Bruce Palmers book states 60-65 ft/lbs. Nothing mentioned in the military manual. Seams a lot to me. What are your thoughts on this.
I have standard #5 low compression WLA alloy heads.
Regards Keith Atkinson
