i installed the cyber poet billet valve stems, the spec was to torque them to 7.2 lbs, with a warning not to over torque, i didn't have an inch lbs wrench so i just DID IT BY FEEL, i'm a pipe fitter and used to cranking on pipes so i would rather torque everything i touch !!

I saw a value somewhere once, but I don't remember what it was. I do think it was in inch pounds though. Right or wrong, I did put locktite on the threads of mine!:thumbup::thumbup:

I tighten the first nut until the valve stem won't move, then I put Loc-Tite the second nut, and snug it up.
