A Most Unusual Thing Happened This Morning…

Keep it in the back of your mind.  When coppers get compression by them by being too loose, they have a nasty habit of grooving and/or becoming so misshapen that a retorque wont do any good.

 

Believe Dave was just trying to give you a heads up.  Everyone has a budget, and timeline.  Its up to you how many corners you're willing to cut.  Glad you're back on the road!

 


I plan to keep an eye on them and will get all new washers and re-torque them at every other oil change from here on out.

might be overkill but I’ll have peace of mind.

Id never even heard of one working loose.  I imagine that after the first torque check, you'd be good for a half million miles or so.  BUT..... I've come to be familiar with how your luck works. :right:

yup no need to do it twice if done correctly the first time

Agreed. Don't fix what ain't broke, fix what could be damaged already. (copper washers) once those washers are seated well and smashed in, they wont leak unless something moves. Nothing should even have the possibility of moving if something isn't causing some serious issues and everything is assembled properly.

Dont fix what ain't broke....
I'm going to remember this and bring it up for a good laugh!
You yet to know about the slippery slope here and how easily the grease appears under your boots. I've seen what you do with chainsaws. The trucks just move the decimal point over a couple times.

That saw came in just to get tuned up and cleaned up. It left A cutting machine refurbished with porting and all new consumables ready for a show and shine or competition.
