RE: Head bolt re-torquing

I have eliminated slight cyliner head oil weeps by retorquing on my

At 1000km and on subsequent retorques (above) done as per manual I have
noted an "advance" of the c/head nut of some 8 to 15 degrees.   It is
important to accurately establish the "starting" point of the 90+90 angle
torque with the initial 20Nm.  I use my small t/wrench where 20Nm is just
over 50% of it's range (and it has a test certificate FWIW).
