Orange is a bit far lol.. Have you looked through Jaysens tutorial on installing cams?? Its not as hard as it all seems to be. Its fair enough if you don't feel confident (and at one stage we all were).. but just a though.


Cheers

Same thing happened to me the other week. Had the torque wrench at just 15nm and one of the rocker bolts snapped.

They aren't the strongest things in the world, but it shouldn't really happen. Did you have it set on the dowels properly.. and did you do them up in stages?


Cheers

Yes it was all seated fine, and yep i was doing it up in stages (15nm is what the torque wrench was set at when it snapped, 25nm is the torque spec on rocker gear bolts).

Done it heaps of times before and never had problems. I couldnt believe it when it snapped. The bolts all looked fine, just the one that snapped with 0 force on it (less than 15NM anyway). No big deal though, pulled the gear off, extracted the broken thread, back on with different set of bolts and all fine.
