    Some Good Tools

    I am about to finish up the rebuild on my 1050. I now know I have to take the cylinders and bolt the manifold to it before I set the jugs on the cases. But my question is what are the tools yall use to get to the bolts for the jugs with the manifold on?

    You put the cylinders on, and hand/lightly tighten the cylinder base nuts so they hold the cylinders down to the crank case, but are still able to shift/slip as needed in the next step.

    Then you mount the exhaust manifold, and tighten it up to align the cylinders to the manifold.

    Now you finish torquing the cylinder base nuts.

    For some hard to reach cylinder base nuts, a 'crows foot' wrench is helpful.

    i fond when starting to torque the base nuts down, the crows foot will get in the way of exaust side basenuts some of thetime.. so what i did was tighten thebasenut as much as a could...thentake a 14mm wrench and tighten the bolt some more so i could get the crows foot back on..and finish tighting...
