Hopefully the info before the crash gets on here. I need to re torque the head on my kart. Was teched according to my buddy the previous owner. Looks like I've seen that it's 140-150...is that foot pounds? Also, is there a sequence?
Front Center, rear center, left rear, right front, right rear, left front, left center, right center. (As the engine sits on the kart -- looking at it from behind the kart - if that makes any sense to you.) That's the order I torque them in; 10"# at a time up to 135"# with the Briggs or other soft graphite style head gaskets. I only go to 150"# if I'm using the Burris (Honda style) metal head gasket and be sure that you finish hone the cylinder with a torque plate torqued to the appropriate amount for the gasket that you are using.
