SOURCE: 91 kx 250 torque values

Engine Top End:
Auto Decompressor Bolt 104 in·lb
Cylinder Head Cover Bolts 87 in·lb
Cylinder Head Bolts: M10 36 S
M6 104 in·lb S

the S in that means the specified pattern ... just like tightening car tire bolts... please note all that it its INCH lbs....

don't know why it says just 36 for the M10 bolts unless they left out inch lbs

Anything else let me know as i've got a manual for the 250 f... actually i've got a few different ones


Please take a moment to rate this solution as i've taken a few minutes to find the manual thanks

SOURCE: Head bolt torque specs needed for 96 tbird 3.8

Head bolts are torque to yeild so you MUST use new bolts.
Tighten cylinder head retaining bolts in numerical sequence in three steps as follows:

  1. 20 Nm (15 lb-ft).
  1. 40 Nm (30 lb-ft).
  1. 50 Nm (37 lb-ft)
Loosen retaining bolts one at a time two to three revolutions and retighten as follows:

Long bolts:
  • Tighten to 40-50 Nm (30-37 lb-ft).
  • Rotate an additional 175-185 degrees.
  • Go to next bolt in sequence.
Short Bolts:
  • Tighten to 20-30 Nm (15-22 lb-ft).
  • Rotate an additional 175-185 degrees.
  • Go to next bolt in sequence.
Here is a pic of the sequence

You also work your way in pairs from the inside out, NOT cris cross as many other applications.

Some IMPORTANT info here. Should apply to most same era/ 900's (84/85/86).

Husky model VT631502AJ head torque specs

I am certain there are torque specifications but I don't know what they are. You might be able to get them from the manufacturer. Lacking that, determine what the bolt strength (usually indicated by marks on the bolt head) and with the bolt strength and size you can determine what the appropriate torque would be for that size bolt. Too little torque and the head will leak. Too much and you will strip out the threads or twist off the bolt head. A 13mm head is nominally a 1/2", which is not a very large bolt head thus the bolt shank is not going to be particularly large, probably somewhere in the 7 to 9 mm range. Check online for torque specs. If you can't identify the specific bolt strength I would assume it is the lowest normal value for that size bolt. There shouldn't be any particular reason for using high-strength bolts in this type of application.

If you mean head bolts you need to ask a dealer, if you mean valve cover bolts you can look up torque spec's by bolt size just google it look for a flow chart of spec's.

Replacing the hubs and rotor on my 02 ford excursion i need torque specs

just pull them up tight and dont forget to oil the bolts first so they dont corrode ,the smaller the shank of the bolt the less torque it needs so a bolt with 17mm head would be about 55 or so 19mm head 70 or so it is not rocket science tightening a bolt
