Urgent _ Head Bolt Torque Settings ?

Postby simonbuk » Wed 16.05.2018, 15:50

I've looked in the WikiLEC and searched but couldn't find an answer.

Does anybody know what the correct torque settings are for the head bolts please ?

OK, looks like Tq 40 Nm phase 1, then Tq 78 Nm phase 2 ?

Exactly as John (B-C-N) says above: copied from Section EC Page 37 of WSM. (John was quicker than me to post!!!!)

Simon,

Yep those numbers are what the Workshop Maunual state (Section EC, page 37).

I spent a while looking in section TDG for the numbers, as that was where I would have expected to find them - typical Lotus!)

Edit - already answered whilst i was looking for the answer!
Dave

Just the one now, but this one's mine! - and it will be finished eventually.....

Thanks everybody !

I searched the WikiLEC under a few headings and i thought it might appear under 'Torque Settings' - but it was one of the few settings that wasn't there !!
