Rebuild the head then fit and torque down and it'll be easier refitting the cams with the head not fitted to the engine. Wouldn't want any bolts going missingocwasere said:
Better to assemble the carrier off the engine. So much easier to fit the camshaft oil seals with the head off the block.ocwasere said:Thanks

You need a torque wrench to torque the bolts up to 20nm and then after that they are angle tightened.r0ver said:I'm sorry, but what does it mean "Tighten all bolts to 20nm" ?
how can do you know you tightened them to 20nm?
I'm curious because my k series is being rebuilt tomorrow, so I'm on the lookout for any tips and advices on how to remount it properly.
The torque wrench has a gauge on it that you can set the break point on. When you reach the specified torque point the torque wrench will 'break' and click to let you know you've tightened to that amount.r0ver said:this might sound stupid, but how do you use the torque wrentch to bolt them to 20nm?
my question is how you know you reached that mesure?
