    So I just went out and removed the rear rocker/head and everything looked the same as the front. Thinking ahead I noticed a few of the cylinder nuts have a very small amount of clearance above them. When I get to the point of reinstalling the cylinders, I will have to torque these to a specific value. From my understanding, a torque adapter is the tool for the job, however I don't see a torque adapter fitting over that nut. Not enough space above the stud. Is this the job for a crowfoot wrench? and if so would I use one the same way as a torque adapter?

    You have late style cylinders with late style triangular washer, but early nuts. Get a set of the later nuts and you can use a torque adapter on them.

    It seems though, even if I replace the nuts, there still wont be enough room between the top of the stud and the first fin to get a torque adapter in there. Does this mean I need to replace the studs as well?

    S&S Big Bore nuts would be nice to do ...

    Grind the wrench to fit.

    Is it not advised to trim the cylinder fin with a die grinder when I have it off? Trying to figure out a way to not spend money, this is starting to add up really quick. I will modify a tool if I have to though.

    It actually looks like there wouldn't even be room for for a torque adapter even if I had enough room above the stud. There isn't any gap between the nut and the cylinder. Unless the "correct" nuts are smaller in diameter. What am I missing here? Do I need to replace the studs now? Those S&S big bore nuts seem like they would add to the issue of not having enough room between the stud/nut and the first fin too. I’m thinking I can just use a crowfoot wrench at 90 degrees on a torque wrench to get the proper torque without changing anything?

    You can use a crowsfoot. The ones for hydraulic fittings are taller for more contact on the nut. Again, you have to grind them for clearance.

    The proper stock nuts for the 80s are a 9/16 hex, so a torque adapter ground thin will work.

    Don't worry about torquing the nut................... Get it as tight as you can with a 8" wrench...............

    Torque to "Two Gunts"
    (One fart is optional) ...

    Be a good idea to use one drop of Blue loctite on the studs too ...

    Do you know what the stock size is? All I am seeing for specs in the manual is end play. My breather is measuring in at 1.125"

    Yeah, I'm alright. I got enough asswipe for a while, and I'm using the downtime from work to rework my website (sincitybiker.com) since it is an online motorcycle events calendar and there ain't shit going on for runs for a while. Got a couple rides in with John and a couple other friends. Went to Valley of Fire today and a few days ago went to Death Valley.

    What is the name of this program you are using Drag, if you don't mind me asking?
    It's really a neat way to play around a bit and see the effect.
