Cylinder Head Bolt Wicking
Hey guys. I see a tiny bit of water glistening between the cylinder head and block under bolt #16, so I'm thinking that water might be crawling up the bolt and wicking its way out, or the head bolt needs to be re-torqued (new build). A couple of other bolts needed it as well and I couldn't get to this one as the headers were in the way.
I'd like to pull the bolt, put some new thread sealant on it and then torque it back down.
Any issues with doing that? Do I need to re-torque all to follow the sequence or can I just do that one.
