Re: head bolt torque?
I need to bookmark that autozone site, cool even if flawed! It is amazing that I ended up stopping at 47.5 foot lbs. because that is what felt right from the standpoint of them not turning anymore.
Sidenote: My convertable has about 155K on it, all mine as I bought new, and leaking coolant. Couldn't find an external leak, heatercore leak nor excessive moisture in the exhaust, no coolant in the oil. Tore into it thinking the head gasket must be leaking and couldn't find a problem there. Maybe the adapter at the back of the head where the heater core hose attaches? No drips ever on pavement and it used a LOT of coolant. It was very clean inside the motor, (very regular oil changes) and very little cylnder bore wear. Very amazing.
Got any ideas?
