Well, I must not have done the second round of torque to 23.5 Ft-lb. because all of the barrel nuts needed to be torqued!!!

Before re-torque (same as above)
#1: 130 psig
#2: 100 psig
#3: 142 psig
#4: 125 psig
#5: 150 psig
#6: 125 psig

After re-torque
#1: 132.5 psig
#2: 122.5 psig
#3: 142.5 psig
#4: 135 psig
#5: 150 psig
#6: 132.5 psig

Not much of an improvement except for #2 which had nuts that were totally backed off on the exhaust side.

There is still a loud tapping sound like a loose valve. When the #2 exhaust valve is tightened (over tightened) the sound softens, but is still there. The #2 cyclinder also has the lowest compression. Any ideas on what the problem might be?
