Help Head Gasket torque settings.

Help!

Just removed my head due to a blown gasket. and just trying to work these torque settings out...

The Electronic manual thing says "2.0 + 4.0 + 90 + 90 + 90"

Is this 2NM + 4NM? Seems fairly low to me
Can anyone clarify the values for me.

Ta.

2 Nm is next to nothing, I think it's 2 Kgm and 4Kgm, at least that's what I torqued my cylinder head bolts the last time I removed the cylinder head.

Cheers for clearing that up for me Hoygaard.

Dont suppose anyone has a more detailed picture of how to fit these cam locks?

The manual shows where to fit them but not what way round or which lock to whuch lobe

Re: Head Gasket torque settings.

I cant remember which lock went on which lobe, but afaik the recess in the locks have to face toward the cam sprockets. You should be able to fit them when the lobes on cylinder one points outwards at a 90 degree angle.

Re: Head Gasket torque settings.

The torque figures in the manual are in daNm (1daNm = 10Nm)

So it is 20Nm then 40Nm then 90deg then 90deg then 90deg.
