Common Peugeot Cylinder Head Torques and Valve Clearances

The table below has been built to provide a quick reference chart for my benefit, as I am often asked for this sort of information. You should always check against the specific engine type, as there maybe differences between types. To the best of my knowledge they are correct and I do check from time to time.
