    Evening and hello
    Does anyone here know the Torque settings and proper order for the bolts on the piston head for the GX160 5.5 hp?

    also need the armature air gap and the valve clearance

    thanks in advance

    The head bolt torque is 15.9-18.8 ft-lbs and there isn't a particular pattern, Just criss-cross will be fine and I use a two step procedure Armature gap is 0.008-0.016 and valves are 0.006 intake 0.008 exhaust.

    Take care
