Heat cycles/re-torques on the fresh top end

I wanted to share my heat cycles/re-torques so far. We build the motor on Saturday and ran it 200F head temperature per HF no touch thermometer. Sunday was a cold re-torque via calibrated elbow, breaker bar and doing an every other bolt pattern. We got pretty much a 1/8 to 1/4 on every bolt. We ran it up to 200F again. Monday was another cold torque sequence and less than 1/8 of a turn on each bolt. We ran it up to 200F again.

The plan is another re-torque and neighborhood ride. Another day and another re-torque and easy ride home about 15 miles or so.
