After replacing the head gasket
on my aux-diesel, should I re-torque the head
bolts after operating the motor
(at load) for approx 40 hours?
Unsure if re-torquing is REALLY needed/recommended or just the local mechanic
trying to run up some hours.
is a 198x, 4cyl Peugeot, model 4D50, "marinized" for raw water cooling
Background: Head was re-leveled by a machinest; gasket
replacement (and other minor work) performed by local mechanic
. Original prob was overheating
, originally caused by disfunctional heat exchanger
that is now replaced. Woulda/shoulda replaced heat exchanger
before blowing head gasket.
BTW: Still sweltering in southern Baja
-- but happy hurricane
Jimena missed us!
