wayne :

S6D95L-1

Customer :

I cannot believe that the head torque is 108,159 Ft LbsI do not have a torque wrench that measures 100000 # also main bearings seems high

Customer :

Wayne--Received your answer and I can not believe the main bearing torque is 87159 ft/lbs +90 also head torque 108159 ft/lbs +90-120 I don't understand what you mean Rods 94 ft/lbs + 90- Rocker shaft torque 45-52 ft/lbs As for these specs I don't have a torque wrench in the hundred thousands ft/lbs

wayne :

NO, the head torque is 108 ft then 159 Ft Lbs

wayne :

rods 94 foot Lbs, then a extra 90 Degree turn

wayne :

another words, on a clock 12 would be zero, 3 o'clock would be 90 degree, 6 o'clock would be 180 degree and so on

wayne :

rockers 45 ft lbs to 52 Ft lbs

wayne :

does this make more sense to you now, sorry about the confusing numbers

wayne :

That's not high at all for mains, some go to 200 to 300 ft lbs

Customer :

Wayne-- The rod bolts are 10 mm and the normal torque is 40 ft/lbs max I torque to just past 60 and the bolts start to stretch could the specs be wrong

Customer :

Wayne--Sent you a message as to the rod bolts are 10 mm and the normal torque is 40 ft/lbs and when I tried as of 60 ft/lbs the bolts start to stretch is there a chance the specs are wrong. Ted

wayne :

I will recheck the book, might missed a line or 2 reading it

wayne :

also when you say rod bolts are 10mm, not the head size but bolt size, correct

Customer :

Wayne--- yes They are 10 X1.50 Or there version of a machine thjread and I cannot find the hardness number on them.

wayne :

What is on the top of the Head Triangle, hash Marks etc

wayne :

I am totally terribly sorry, I am glad you question my answer,

wayne :

I gave you torques for a 17L engine yours is 4.9L

wayne :

wayne :

wayne :

wayne :

105 FT/LBS

wayne :

wayne :
