but like I said I have to thank all you guys, all the advice that I got worked to get this done when I put it all together. Longer wrench, impound socket, some lube and a hot engine. Unfortunately I dont think these bolts would have came out when the engine cold. Im just glad I didnt break the bolts off!
Hey that'* what most of us are here for. But like I said...don't ever tighten them.....make sure you use the Torque specs in the chilton'*, and you'll be just fine.

Or you could just use the torque specs in TECHINFO. Lakeville likes trying to find it in chiltons...when it'* right at his fingertips..

Thanks for the new sig Nate!!!!

Anti seize is a good thing to use.
