3406 cat engine bolt torque specs

Customer Question

3406 cat engine bolt torque specs
Submitted: 5 years ago.
Category: Heavy Equipment
Expert:  Dan Boy replied 5 years ago.

hi bigred

What torques are you looking for and is it a 3406, 3406b or 3406e? If you have your serial # XXXXX we can really be certain that you get the correct information.

Expert:  Cat Instructor replied 5 years ago.

I cannot give you the exact specs. on torque, but I would reccommend you call your local Caterpillar Dealer, Service Department with the Exact Model and Serial #. The Mod. and Ser.# is usually on the Valve Cover information plate, it is also on the side of the engine block at the right or left rear. Caterpillar is constantly updating its information so this is the most accurate way to get the correct specs. Usually the dealer service dept. will give you this information over the phone. Worst case is you might have to go to the dealership and have them look up the numbers you need.
