If you don't have an inch pound wrench, then yes, 16 ft/lbs. =192 in/lbs. and 17 ft/lbs. = 204 in/lbs. The bolts are torqued on the engine when cold.

Toro 721-QZR (38741) 2015 (Hemi Predator Power)

Experience is something you don't get until just after you need it.

I bought two of the parts, JD calls them auger bearings. The broken one has been replaced. Checked the head bolts, at 16 ft/lbs they were tight. If I get a head gasket, how is the valve clearance checked? I didn't see anything in the attached Tecumseh manual. The JD dealer did confirm the machine was built in 1989.
