Figure 69. The knock sensors are installed. Use a 22mm deep socket, and torque them to 18ft lbs. They are both the same, so it makes no difference which hole you put them in.

Figure 70. Attach the connectors from the knock sensor wire harness to the knock sensors.

Figure 71. Insert the rubber plugs. Some builders choose to put a small bead of silicone sealant around the outside of the plugs to act as a dam preventing liquid from getting in the openings. We have chosen not to do so for aesthetic reasons.

Figure 72. Install the rocker guide plates and studs for the roller rockers. Use a small dab of loctite on the studs, you do not want them to back out. Torque the studs to 22ft lbs.
