The head is supposed to be retorqued at 500 or 1000 miles I think.

Oops! I looked through the manual and re-torquing the head on a UCE is never mentioned in the maintenance schedule. Pardon my error, I've corrected the above post. I think it's accepted practice on the iron barrels to check/re-torque the head on all major services so I just did it on my UCE somewhere early on for good measure, and it didn't need any tightening at that time.Scott
Just my 2 cents,If you are overfull, it is easier (for me) to draw off the excess oil using an inexpensive hand held transfer pump than it is to pull the drain plug. You can get a transfer pump at Harbor Freight for about $4.00 They are very handy to have around the garage.
.......There was just too much mechanical junk in the way. What am I missing?
