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

    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
