Depends on which bolts are being tightened. There are 3 different sizes
If its 6mm, then torque should be 10Nm7mm = 14Nm
8mm = 20Nm
how so i know the defference?,, i am using a 7/16 socket
i was torqing to 10 ftlb and it was striping the bolts. i had to use a heli coil to fix the threads. i used a 7mmx1.0 heli coil. exactly what torque do u recomend. i don want to strip any more bolts
yes. but as i tightened the nuts, it pulled the studs out of the cylinder head. i then had to remove the stud fix the thread and replace the stud. i do not want to make the mistake again.
im using a 1/2 drive torque wrench, that has a 10ftlb on it. do you think that the wrench is too big or should i consider a different torque wrench
