When you torque head bolts or any bolt that it is recommended to do in several steps. You some times get that sinking feeling did I torque that bolt or not ????
Here is a quick way to keep track of how many steps you have taken and if every bolt has been torqued . Start your torque sequence after each bolt is torqued mark it with a piece of soap stone. Example: If you are torquing in three steps when you are done every bolt will have three marks
I have a rubber band around my torque that holds a piece of soap stone . This way I never have to hunt for that dam soap stone



Here is a quickie Windshield washer spray nozzle plugged. Take the rubber hose off of the back of the nozzle work it on to the spray side of the nozzle. Use a can of penetrating oil (wd or Gibs) put the little straw in the
nozzle shove the rubber hose over the straw turn the can up side down
press the nozzle . The propellent will clear the windshield spray nozzle
This doesn't always work but it is always worth a try
