    Did you have a good amount of tare torque on the new Mag-Hytech hardware ?

    Let us know how much movement you get on the torque check after a few heat cycles
    Did you use the new gasket that came with the pan or just RTV sealant ?

    I'll be honest, it isn't something I thought to check. Can that only be done with the dial type indicators?

    I'll be rechecking them today so will keep you posted. There are two bolts that I can't access with a torque wrench so I'll try to get to those when I replace the rusted exhaust clamp.

    And for the gasket I just used the one with the Mag hytec pan, didn't use any RTV at all. With how tight it was getting in there it would've been a huge mess anyway.

    A dial is the best to measure tare , but this can be done with a click style that has a small incremental graduations .
    I have a small in lb tq. wrench that I used. , I was surprised at the amount of tare I had. , If I remember correctly I believe it was around 30inlbs ? Been a while so can't remember exactly .
    I did post it up here somewhere ?
    I did.get quite a bit of movement on my tq check though

    Good info sir!


    Just so everyone understands that is with RLK’s torque wrench and driver setup...Yours could be much different.
