1.9 16v JTDM head bolt query
Can anyone confirm the size of Ribe bit needed for the cylinder head bolts on the 1.9 16v JTDM diesel? I think M14 but don't want to buy the wrong (expensive) size.
Are the head bolts single-use stretch type, or re-usable? Elearn indicates torque is set by angular displacement, which generally means 'stretch' IME. If I have to buy new ones, any suggested source? I daresay AR will want about £30 each, x10.
Does anyone know the exact procedure for setting torque when tightening them? Elearn is far too terse for me to make head nor tail.
Lastly, can the head be removed with the gigantic high-pressure pump support bracket still attached to it, or does the bracket have to come off separately before the head is free?
Thanks in advance!
