If you’re planning on doing some work on your car’s engine, you’ll need to know how many inch pounds to apply to the head cylinder. This can be a tricky measurement to make, but we’ll walk you through it step by step.
First, find a torque wrench that goes up to at least 150 inch pounds. You may need to go to a specialty automotive store to find one that goes that high. Next, use a socket that fits the head cylinder and attach it to the torque wrench. Finally, apply pressure to the wrench until it clicks, and then release. The number that the wrench is set to is the amount of pressure you need to apply to the head cylinder.
