I want to check the header bolts tightness on my '15 Roadmaster as I am now getting some decel popping. I know they are known for loosening up. Does anyone have a video of this process? I tried to check them once before but got frustrated and gave up. I know the covers need to come off first but then what? The actual header bolts seem to be at a real bear of an angle to access. Doesn't seem ut should be that difficult. Thanks

You will need a torque wrench with an extension and a U-joint. Pretty easy with that. Torque to 15 foot pounds, I believe.

I finally realized you can access the front header bolt throught the front of the frame, duh. The others were accessible with either different length extension or a universal wrench adapter.
