Parts number 10

My Clymer manual doesn't have this info. I have 12 of these washers, 12 bolts, but for some reason I'm remembering some didn't have washers, but I could be thinking of another part.

Right, it is the 22 head cover bolts where only selected bolts get copper washers.

Head bolt stripping at 10 lbs/sf? https://imgur.com/a/iFO3G1v

This is a situation I've been in many a time. How do you know when you're stripping threads torqing bolts? Book calls for 17-22 lb/sf and it has stayed at about 10 for a bit too long for my comfort. There's always part of me that says 'just keep going, it's made to handle over 22lb/ft. You're almost there, don't quit!' and I don't trust that voice 100%
