    Default Cylinder torque

    Can anyone tell me the proper torque for my 26 JD cylinders? Thanks.

    I don't believe Harley ever had a torque value specified. I do it by feel. Tighten each one a little at a time alternating corner to opposite corner till they are all very tight. ( "X" Pattern) With the course threaded cylinder studs, you can go pretty tight. I'd guess, I'm torquing at about 45 foot pounds. By feel, I try to make them all evenly tight. Not real scientific.
