Alright I haven't put back my hubs yet so I'll stop by Sears after work and get the Craftsman torque wrench. Thanks!

Re: Vanos help please.

so am I still okay for using a harbor freight torque wrench for the sleeve bolts? I put it to 9 ft-lbs but I tightened slightly a little more just in case but only to an extent.

Re: Vanos help please.

Yea it's still in there. So is it harder to crank because when the piston goes up its compressing air right?

Also is it ok to remove spark plugs with splines out? Im probably thinking this too...

Re: Vanos help please.

Did you insert spline to the hub without the vanos unit or did you follow beisans way?
