Do not reuse the old head bolts. These are torque-to-yeild type bolts and stretch when torqued down.

Starting in the center and working your way outward:

1st step - 15 ft-lbs

2nd step - 90 degrees

3rd step - 90 degrees

What is the torque on the bolt to replace camshaft sensor on 2003 cadillac cts?

there\'s \'nippidy-nip\' tight(platic cover bolts) , there\'s tight( coil bolt), there\'s tight tight( brake caliper bolt), there\'s Eff Tee tight(tight - suspension bolts), and there\'s might be beyond. Yours is just \'tight\'.

If you use a 1/4 socket set just give it 2-3 pound of torque at the end of the handle.

No problem just want to know the torque specs for the valve cover bolts on a 1977 ford f250 4x4 pk. I'm changining out the gaskets and dose not she to torque specs in my manuel.

Rocker arm cover bolts are usually torqued between 6-9 ft/lbs, or 88-105 inch lbs. A good wrist tight using a 1/4" drive socket is how I do them and have had great success like that. Always put all bolts in finger tight, then start in the middle of cover top then go to the bottom middle across working your way outward in and up down criss cross pattern. Go around the bolts twice. Most common for people to overtighten them and then the cover will leak again. They do not need to be extremely tight, just a good snug / wrist tight......Mike

I want to change two belts (A/C and Alternator) on my 1999 Mitsubishi Mirage 1.5 car. What steps I am suppose to do.

First, feel the tightness of your belts. You will have to tighten the new belts to the proper tightness. If they are too tight, they will wear the bearings prematurely. If they are too loose, they will slip.

Alternator Belt Removal


  1. Loosen the alternator lock nut.
  2. Loosen the adjuster bolt.
  3. Rotate the adjuster bolt counter clockwise to release the tension on the belt.
  4. Remove the belt.
Similarly for the compressor belt

  1. Loosen the lock nut.
  2. Loosen the adjuster bolt.
  3. Rotate the adjuster bolt counter clockwise to release the tension on the belt.
  4. Remove the belt.
5. Install the new compressor belt

6. Rotate the adjuster bolt clockwise until the belt is tight like it was before you removed it.

7. Tighten the lock bolt.

8. Install the new alternator belt

9. Rotate the adjuster bolt clockwise until the belt is tight like it was before you removed it.

10. Tighten the lock bolt.

How do you replace the alternator?

there are 2 locking bolts underneath and 2 bolts on the front belt adjuster bracket,undo the 2 bottom bolts and the bolt in the alt/bracket,loosen the block bolt/adjuster bracket,that will release the belt tension,then pull out of the engine bay,replacement is the 2 bottom bolts finger tight then the belt over the pulley then finger tight for the bracket,tension the belt be levering the alt away from the block and tighten up the alt/bracket first then the other 3.check belt tightness (1/2"movement/slack on longest run)then recheck all bolts will need to recode your radio after.and dont forget to note what wires came off what terminals.......draw a picture if needed...

How to put the alternater belt back on?

slacken the alternator bolts then slip the belt on the pulleys,using a long screwdiver behind the alternator,lever it out to tighten belt so that the longest part of the belt between pulleys has 1/2 inch movement(too tight and your alternator will need new bearings very soon...)then do up the bolts,check belt tension after all bolts tight to confirm not to tight/loose.

How do I replace the alternator on a 1996 Nissan Maxima?

This alternator has two mounting bolts, one on top (adjuster) and one at bottom (main bolt) You need to untight the top one but not completely, take the poly belt of. Than take the bottom bolt out and remove top one when holding the alternator. Put the new one in place but this time use the bottom bolt first, do not tight it completely, than put the belt on the pulley and use the top bolt. You will need to tight the bottom bolt, than pull the alternator with some bar but gentle to get the belt tight, hold it and than tight the top bolt.

How do I adjust the hood alignment, hood will close but not lock.

Why do you need to do this?
If you have the same hood, look at the bolt impression left at all four bolts align them so you will not see the old bolt shadow.
If you have a different senerio,put the bolts on almost tight but a little loose,enough that when you close the hood(gently) the hood and the bolts will align together.pop the hood and lock down the bolts tight.
