Re: [DML] Exhaust manifold torque figures



Actually you won't snap the studs doing the nuts up - they are (or should be) hardened. You're more likely to pull the threads out of the head than snap the studs although if they came out easily, the threads should be fine and you'll be able to get the specified torque on them

I have two different books. Last night I looked through the one with PJ 
Grady page at the beginning. The other one has black plastic covers. I'll 
check that one today to see if there's any info there. I thought that they 
are all the same... I wonder where the differences came from.
Anyway, I got the studs out a long time ago. They came out surprisingly 
easy. No snapping, no brute force, no vice grips. I soaked them overnight 
and they just unscrewed no problem. I'm now in the process of reassembly and 
want to make sure I do it right. I covered the threads with anti seize, got 
new gaskets and now I'm ready to torque the nuts. If I don't tighten them 
enough I will blow the new gaskets out. If I over do it I risk snapping the 
studs. 7mm is not a whole lot of material and they are easy to break.

Take care,

Greetings from Poland!
