Bedford MW head gasket


Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I have just had the head skimmed on my Bedford MW after a head gasket failure, and reading the manual there are no torque settings for the head bolts. The book says just to tighten the bolts!

Anyone got a suitable ball park figure for the torque settings?

There is a special Bedford tool for tightening the head bolts, a bit like a ring spanner but with one end bent right over to get at the bolts under the rocker arm

I suppose the theory was that if a man pulled it as tight as he could that would be OK

Its is more important to pull everything down evenly
