Question about Toyota Passenger

1 Answer

We are fitting a reconditioned cyl. head to Toyota 2C T diesel turbo engine .On the new head gasket kit they say we should replace head bolts . The old ones are in perfect condition and came out easily with no binding , when old head was removed. In your experence with these engines ,can we get away with using the old head bolts ? We live on an isolated Island in the South Pacific and it is difficult to get engine parts like this from the local Toyota dealer.

Many of today's engines require new head bolts because when they are tightened down they are stretched, and will no longer tighten to true torque. They should have shipped new head bolts with the new head.. Sorry about the bad news.

Toyota 2c. I need cylinder head and flywheel Torque settings


Toyota 2c ...
USE NEW BOLTS...
Torque sequence:
You're driving a diesel single cylinder head engine. Engine head torque has to be done in specific order and stages if not can warp head or break bolts. Suggest you get torque sequence and torque specs from your Toyota dealer, they can give you correct answer. Don't trust answers on here, if you choose wrong specs. could end up messing up head.

How to remove cyl heads


Buy a chiltons manual that's specific the the cyl heads your trying to remove. I'm guessing your talking about heads on a car ? By not including a make, model, year , engine size , diesel or gas, overhead cam, naturally aspirated, turbo, fuel injected, carbureted there is no way to answer the question you are asking. Your biggest concern should be on how to reinstall them. Reinstalling heads are far more complex than removing them. All heads are different in the pattern in which they are tightened down ( to prevent warping ) . A specific amount of torque must be applied to each bolt. Some bolts require thread sealant because they pass through the water/coolant passages in the engine. Failure to do that will result in water leaking into you combustion chamber thus ruining your engine as well as your new head. Also the thickness of the head gasket must be correct because to thin or to thick of a gasket will change your engines compression ratio . The gasket thickness can also change your cc's in the combustion chamber. A gasket that's to thin can also allow the exhaust or intake valve to hit the top of the piston on the compression stroke. If your dealing with an overhead cam or dual overhead cam engine then the proper setting of the camshafts when reinstalling the head or heads is crucial . The above only pertained to gas engines. If you have a Diesel engine then things change dramatically . The pressures in the cylinder head combustion chamber area on a Diesel engine is unbelievable . One small mistake or oversight on reinstalling a head on a Diesel engine can be catastrophic .

the japanese have only just started to make a decent diesel engine.so its no wonder your old toyota is gutless,even with a turbo.(check out its bhp/torque figures) only option is check out a website called "diesel tuning.co.uk",(or others),and fit a small black box that can give you an uplift in power......
