So if you recall I broke a head stud on the head gasket job in this Koehler lawn mower engine. Got the new stud in and the 2 guide pins that sit around the stud in the block. I think last time the head was on cockeyed on the pins because they were both bent. Anyway I double and tripled checked to make sore head was on them straight and flush with the block. First torque setting is something like 16nm, then next stage is 35.5 or 300something inch pounds. First one in the 2nd stage snapped. Wtf? Now I got to spend more money getting another one. I triple checked the torque wrench. I don't get it. I knew I should have ordered more than 1 head stud. What a pain in the rear.
