I appreciate that torque wrenches weren't around much in the 1950s but has anyone got a torque setting for the cylinder head nuts please?  I've done mine to 15lb/ft and it seems tight enough to me.  I'm using a standard composite head gasket.  I've carefully tightened them slightly in a diagonal fashion.

Cheers.  Bruce.

Don't forget to re-check when the engine is nicely warmed up, too.
