Rather curious, do you remember what were they torqued to and in what sequence?

I would have thought the 429 would be around 140 like the 460?

Reading what has been looked at and everything confirmed square, the only two other possibilites that came to me was out of sequence distortion or under torqued. Which is why I asked.

However I have never had a 429.

I did do mine in three steps using oil .when I put it back together I will do the straight 140.
Thanks for all the advice

This is not intended to fan any flames but I would always torque in steps..................
