Having read some of the recent posts, I went to check the head of my 1996 9000 Aero. They were not finger tight but were quite easily torqued up a bit with a torque spanner, and nothing like the force needed to give them that extra 90 degrees. I usually have to put the jack handle onto a solid socket to wind that up. So how do I go about tightening them? Loosen them off a bit, take them up to torque and then give them the 90 degree treatment? -- Richard Sutherland-Smith 19 Webb Road, Wanganui 5001, New Zealand
