Broken stud

So things were going so well. The exhausts were set at 10 thou’ and the inlets lined up 8 thou’ so good to go. I started to torque down the head to 3.5 kg via 1 kg steps and bang a stud snaps! I’m gutted. The whole engine now has to come apart to fix this stud…

I wondered if the setting was too high but I cross checked against the torque required for a triple and 3.5 kg seemed in range.

Not sure what to do now. Atlas #2 engine needs the most work, Atlas #3 now requires a shit-load so perhaps Atlas #1 is the way to go?

My motivation just fell through the floor.
