I bought a piece of property with a garage that has a 16X7 foot door. The header over the door rotted causing the torsion bar to spring. I've replaced the header, can I respring the torsion bar?

Just be careful.

Nothing quite like releasing the bolt while not being prepared to take up the tension of the spring. Smashed knuckles are the least of your worries if you do that.
