Small Engine Problems? Ask an Engine Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello, I'm Cam. Please include all the details about your issue so I can accurately advise you. I cannot see your vehicle so please be detailed.
What year is the engine?
I bought the genset in 2006, so might be 2005.
Is it an overhead cam, dual overhead cam?
OK, this is on a Kohler generator, SOHC.
I need to send your question the small engine group as they have these specs.
Hello!Thank you for choosing Just Answer for the solution to your problem.My name is XXXXX XXXXX I am going to assist you with this.
When installing a head, you should always use new head bolts - do not reuse the old ones.
Torques specs are:
Initial sequence - 25N-m (18 ft-lbs)
Second sequence - 60 degrees
Third sequence - 60 degrees
Fourth sequence - 60 degrees
Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX click the "accept" I should probably add that for right now I am trying to just tighten the bolts to try to limp along for a bit warmer weather--a few days or so. There's a small oil leak from the head/block gasket. So, also I'll need to know the proper sequence of the bolts, starting from the center. Not sure what the numbering is.
Then I think I'll be ok. Maybe I'm safe just starting at the center, and alternating?
If you will give me 5 mintues, I will upload a diagram of the proper sequence for you.
Here you go, my friend.
