Rockers are a structural part of the unibody and not bolted in.. Do you mean rocker guards or some sort of panels added to the rockers?

I think he's talking about the pinch seam.


They should be torqued down nice and tight, there's no point wasting your time with a torque wrench on something so simple.

At each bridge, tighten the capscrews alternately, one turn at a time, to avoid damaging the bridge.

Tighten the capscrews to 28 Nzm (21 ft. lbs.) torque.

I'm guessing he's talking about the rocker arms (in the valvetrain). Using roller rockers by chance?
