The top piece is manufactured (machined) at the same time as the head. So you cant have them separate.
A damaged thread in cover screw hole can be repaired using helicoil insert.

Finished, very easy, just needs to be careful, and I tight valve cover between 10 and 14Nm :D

Lets see now how is it going to hold...and also I reolaced fuel filter and two rubber hoses, before and after the filter, going for a small trip soon so just to be ready :)

Anyways, thx :)

Bearing caps to head are 10Nm.
Cover screws to caps are 14Nm
Torque wrenches are cheap.
The cover screws actually bottom out so when they stop turning - dont try harder!
It does not take much damage the thread - but you know that.
For the head torx bolts, use a good fitting socket.


Yep...done everything like, simple :)
To be honest, here in Croatia, tools are f**** expensive...for example, M6 heli coil, 10 inserts inside and 1 tool for that, around 60$ :sneaky:
