How do you adjust torque to yield?

Don't listen to that person. There is no adjustment.

My bad, I'm almost asleep, it's not "torque to yield" on the valves. But still, it's not adjustable.

Oh ...sounds like you need your "framistat" adjusted. (thats the thing that keeps the turbocharger belt tight and aligned)
To make the adjustment ,you must get the temperature of the framistat up to
operating temperature. This is best accomplished with a bucket of steam. After bathing it in steam,place a metric adjustable crescent wrench (not SAE) on the dual thread
bolt (the one with both clockwise and counterclockwise threads. (dont break it....very expensive) When you no longer hear the clackity-clack the adjustment is done. Be wary
of free advise.
(On that note ,send a payment of 25 bucks to me )
Its tax deductable too.

You have muffler bearings ? I thought they were bushings.
