head stud retorque?

419 Views 4 Replies 3 Participants Last post by  Clunk
been doing some reading, lots of people say you need to retorque the studs but i dug around in the manual from arp and they say it isnt necessary. i plan to check my valve lash tomorrow so that would be the time if im going to. i installed the studs with arp's lube and over torqued them by 12ft/lbs per arp's recommendation.

What do you think about a little cam, lifter, push-rod, rocker arm & top of the valve stem wear? Of course you get some of that back with valve & seat wear.
I followed ARP's instructions to the letter and haven't looked back.
