    I tried to edit my rant because it got off topic, but Frank captured it in a quote. I never really noticed how I spell Duece, as I let the spell checker automatically change everything....it does it even if I want to use a different word, so why bother?

    Got 3 piston sets in their liners and dropped in, and managed to get the rear head on. Followed the torque chart, and dropped in the rocker arm assembly and lifters. Couldn't grab a picture since I'm working in the driveway and it got dark when those went on, no now the main part is half done I guess, took tomorrow off work so I hope to get the front 3 in as well.IMG_20190922_182328466.jpg

    Based on this picture it looks like the heads can be torqued down using regular tools. Is there a reason to need those offset 7/8" wrenches when changing head gaskets on this or LDT engines? Are guys only using them to check or re-torque the heads after everything else has been put back on?

    Yes it's doable with regular tools, but you absolutely need that funky offset wrench. The nuts on the driver's side edge of the block are inaccessible without it. I'll put up a picture in a bit when I get out there to work on it some more. You can make the tool yourself if you have a few basic tools and a welder. I'll post up a pic of the one I made as well.

    These are the nuts, not too terrible on the rear head but on the front the oil cooler assembly sites right there and you can't even fit a wrench down there. Crowsfoots don't fit either. What I did was cut a 3/4 socket down and welded it to the end of a 1/2" extension at a slight angle. Allows you to use a torque wrench up out of the way of the headIMG_20190923_095633830.jpgIMG_20190923_095737665_HDR.jpg

    Not to long ago a moderator removed all postings with Deuce spelled wrong.
    Turn off the automatic spellcheck before you send something nasty to someone that you didn't even intend to be that way.

    There is numerous many and "choking point" amount of threads on the "crazy wrench" and what it means in offset vis-a-vis actual torque applied. lots of photos and information to be had, this is the TM stuff.
