ok....so far so good. very little if any oil consumption. i cant believe i didnt do this earlier. -- ------------------------------------------ laszlo almasi ----cool toys formerly carolina watercraft works ----mack daddy trailers ----ice angels on sun 21 sep 2008 184037 -0400 carolina watercraft works cooltoys@bellsouth.net wrote ok got them all swapped out and boy were they worn out. im curious as to the material the oem seals are made of. after a bit of cursing getting this done since i was coming off of a bout of flu and one valve dropping down in a cylinder....yes you read right one of the valves dropped down. luckily i have a small diameter magnetic pick up tool that fit into the guide....but the valve cocked to the side a little too much to pull out. so...after more cursing and thoughts of having to pull the head to get the valve...ding ding ding a light bulb goes off. so im back into the house to get a coat hangar. after analyzing the bend id need to get under the valve and pull it back up....i insert my one-off custom tool down into the spark plug hole and tada.....i get under the valve enough to get it back up and all is good. note to self....dont let anyone turn off air supply next time. itd be easier if they asked first. ye forget to post the sign touch this air-hose and die! so im done now and have much less detonation and expect my oil loss to be near zero as compared to before the seal fix. i recommend for anyone with over 150k miles on their ram to consider getting this fix done. its not difficult but takes a little time. youll save aggravation down the road. report back on oil comsumpsion! .

steve w. wrote arm type is better for accuracy if it was calibrated correctly scale printed properly dunno about that. most any lab that deals with tight torque specs seems to all use clicker types. my company sends ours out yearly or more to calibration labs. opps i remember the torque wrench wars here from years back! .
