    Using a long 1/2 inch swivel socket, tighten the top
    nut of the front cylinder head exhaust flange to 9-18
    in-lbs (1-2 Nm). Tighten the bottom nut to 100-120
    in-lbs (11.3-13.6 Nm). Final tighten the top nut to
    100-120 in-lbs (11.3-13.6 Nm).
    Tighten the bottom nut of the rear cylinder head
    exhaust flange to 9-18 in-lbs (1-2 Nm). Tighten the
