Thanks to everyone who replied

Anyone reading this thread please bear in mind the F20 has an aluminium block, always go by the book on torque setting, getting a thread helicoiled is far more expensive than a bolt or two. Take care!
I don't know but the fact people are snapping bolts may mean Honda are supplying weaker bolts to help avoid the block being damaged.

A 1/4", 4-18 ft/lbs / 5-25Nm torque wrench is a worthwhile tool to have in your box (much cheaper than stripping your block down or replacing the solenoid housing) - then you can really find out how little force is required to tighten to spec.

While we're on the subject of vtec solenoid upper gaskets I've been reading that the Kraken Automotive ones get the Billman stamp of approval, you can get them on a popular auction site.

That's about a one-finger pull, isn't it?

What are you lot using?

Another point is if your bolt has a spring washer, only tighten it till the washer is flat, tightening it any more negates the purpose of the washer.

The only purpose of the washer is to stop the bolt falling out when it's already loose, it won't stop it coming loose to start with, so you should still be torquing them.
