•Support the engine with a suitable stand.
○Put the planks onto the suitable stand for engine balance.
○Support the engine until all bolts have been tightened.
Straight from the service manual and if you didn't do this what you described happening happens.
As for being worried, unless the bolt backs out you should be fine. However, if it backs out on its own you are in for some serious work.
Yeah, I wouldn't want that on my ride. Is the bolt torqued properly? Or are you measuring the torque to keep cutting new threads in the hole due to the cross threading? You don't really know.Hmm.
It torqued down to spec just fine.
I know it was more effort that normal to put the bolt in but it did not take more effort than the 32 ft lbs of torque to put the bolt in.
In fact when I torqued it down it took 1/4 turn before the torque wrench clicked.
You really think the frame is stressed?
