Question about Mercedes-Benz Cars & Trucks
Want to find out how to set it
As this is a diesel then the settings are higher than a petrol engine Now according to my alldata book its 60nm slacken 90? then 20 nm which i find confusing ,now back to basics here if a cast iron head with a turbo then 120lbs ,usual start in the middle and work alternatly outwards ,firstly with a rachet tighten down a bit which will give about 40lbs then the bar and slight grunt this will give about 80/90lbs then the torque wrench to the setting ,by pulling it down in three stages this will ensure the head is pulled down equally without damaging the gasket ,seen this before so i always do it in three stages .Unless you have a the big multi socket air powered factory tool like on the assembly line

Tighten in sequence to 29ft.lbs then tighten in sequence to 58ft lbs. then loosen all bolts. Then tighten in sequence to 33ft lbs. then tighten each bolt in sequence 90 degrees then tighten each bolt again 90 degrees

fastest most reliable way to find out what parts are interchangable is to call your local wrecking/recycling/junk yard.... they have books that deal with that issue.
