Re: 8v head torque settings and tighterning order

Thanks Dave, are you sure stage one is 22 lb ft and not 20 Nm?
(20 Nm x 0.738 = 14.8 lb ft)

The bit that confused me was the 3 + 90 degree + 90 degree. I didn't know what the 3 meant.

Re: 8v head torque settings and tighterning order

Exactly what I was after. But how do you know which bolt is which number. Are they numbered on the cover? Thanks.

Imagine that is a virtual head, looking down at it. Tighten the bolts in the order of the numbers

Re: 8v head torque settings and tighterning order

...but there are only 6 bolts! I have a MK2 1.2 8v. Maybe the above is for the Mk1? Has anyone got the torque settings for the above, and the toightening order? Would appreciate a quick reply as I'm half way through the job at the moment. Thanks.

Re: 8v head torque settings and tighterning order

Yes! Sorry! Is the torque important on that? I reckon they wern't light enought before because it was leaking badly, but the gasket is OK (which is a relief because the shop provided me with the wrong one!) Thanks for your instant reply!

Re: 8v head torque settings and tighterning order

Thanks, I tried the blue hylomar but it's still leaking! Any other suggestions? Is there any trick to putting it on? I guess I put it on about 0.5-1mm think, with my finger.

Re: 8v head torque settings and tighterning order

Hi Guys,
I'm replacing the cylinder head gasket on my sons Punto,
(1.2 8 valve head) the info for the head torque was just
what I was looking for, but I had to strip the head to get
it skimmed, I'm now looking for a torque setting for the
camshaft bearing caps. hope someone can help....cheers.
