    Con rod and head bolt torque settings.

    Does anyone know the torque settings for the head bolts and con rod end caps for a 1940 four ? It's the small con rod bolts that I don't want to over tighten and sheer off.

    Yes, I went and got a new gauge as you recommended on one of your first replies, it reads in BAR, but translates to read 5lbs less than my original gauge.

    Hi Larry, I don't understand why the speed that the pump is turned should affect the spill rate. I can see that the pump produces more pressure when it is turned fast compared to slow, but irrelevant...
