What is the Head Bolt Torque specs for a 25HP Kohler Pro CV7308?

Heads Secured With Screws
1. Check to make sure there are no nicks or burrs on
sealing surfaces of cylinder head or crankcase.
2. Install a new cylinder head gasket (with printing up).
3. Install cylinder head and start four new hex flange
4. Torque screws in two increments; first to 22.6 N·m
(200 in. lb.), then finally to 41.8 N·m (370 in. lb.).

Heads Secured With Mounting Studs, Nuts, and
1. Check to make sure there are no nicks or burrs on
sealing surfaces of cylinder head or crankcase.
2. If all studs were left intact, go to Step 6. If any studs
were disturbed or removed, install new studs as
described in Step 3. Do not use/reinstall any
loosened or removed studs.
3. Install new mounting stud(s) into crankcase.
a. Thread and lock 2 mounting nuts together on
smaller diameter threads.
b. Thread opposite end of stud, with preapplied
locking compound, into crankcase, until specified
height from crankcase surface is achieved. When
threading in studs, use a steady tightening motion
without interruption until proper height is
obtained. Otherwise frictional heat from engaging
threads may cause locking compound to set up
Studs closest to lifters must have an exposed
height of 75 mm (2 15/16 in.).
Studs furthest from lifters must have an exposed
height of 68 mm (2 3/4 in.).
c. Remove nuts and repeat procedure as required.
4. Check that dowel pins are in place and install a new
cylinder head gasket (printing up).
5. Install cylinder head. Match numbers on cylinder
heads and crankcase. Make sure head is flat on
gasket and dowel pins.
6. Lightly lubricate exposed (upper) threads of studs
with engine oil. Install a flat washer and nut onto
each mounting stud. Torque hex nuts in two stages;
first to 16.9 N·m (150 in. lb.), then finally to 33.9 N·m
(300 in. lb.).

What tools do I need to replace my valve cover gasket?

Combination wrench set 1/4 " to 1" and/or 6mm to 19mm box-end & open-end or deep-well and short socket sets same size as wrenches with a 3/8" and 1/2" drive sets, Torque wrench, soft-faced hammer ( plastic or rubber ). The proper torque for valve cover mounting bolts is 85 inch-pounds for 1994 and later years.
Remove crankcase ventilation tube and hose from valve cover, Remove wire loom clips, note the locations of the studs.
Remove accelerator cable, kick-down cable and cruise-control cable from the snap in clips on top of valve cover, disconnect them at the throttle body .
Remove the three bolts and the control cable bracket.
Remove the valve cover bolts and lift cover off. If cover is stuck use a soft-face mallet to tap on the cover to break it loose.
DO NOT PRY ON THE gasket flange.

Need to know how to set the pinion nut.

the purpose of the collapsible spacer is to get the correct pinion bearing pre load. First step is to know the required pinion preload setting for your diff. Assuming that you have the correct mesh for the gears then insert the pinion seal. Assemble the pinion flange and do up the nut while moving back and forth the pinion flange to allow the bearing rollers to seat properly. using a suitable torque measuring procedure adjust the pinion nut until that torque setting is reached. ( suitable is the correct tool or attach a round disc of known dia to the flange and by calculation of radius times force ---from say a spring balance with a string wrapped around the disc--) That is to say 12 lb pull on a 4" radius disc will ==48ft/lb torque. All diffs using a collapsible space are assembled typically..; My reference is ford

Transmission pan torque specs for 2005 chevy silverado?

15 to 20 PSI, using a 1/4" drive ratchet with the corrcet socket, you should get it right by just using your wrist to tighten the bolts, watch as you do this the gasket will slightly move. enough torque. seal your new gasket to your pan with a thin film of silicone sealer, let set-up till dry. Put a film of wheel bearing grease on the flange of the tranny and install the pan, the grease will not leak and if you need to remove the pan again it comes off easy.

Oil leak

nstalling the Oil Pan
  • Make sure the sealing surface of the pan's rim is flat and capable of providing a seal before reinstalling it.
  • Check the flanges of a steel oil pan for warpage.
  • Use a straightedge or lay the pan, flange side down, on a flat surface with a flashlight underneath it to spot uneven edges.

  • Carefully check the flange around bolt holes. Minor distortions can be corrected with a hammer and block of wood.
  • If the flanges are too bent to be repaired in this manner, the pan should be replaced.
Once it has been determined that the flanges are flat, install the oil pan with a new gasket.
  • Tighten the screws evenly. Do not tighten any of the screws all of the way until all of the screws are started in their threads.
  • Use an inch-pound torque wrench to torque the screws to specifications.
  • Look this up in the service manual. Specifications usually range from 60 to 150 inch-pounds. This is not very much, but it compresses the gasket and allows it to work properly.

I am replacing the seal on the rear penion i need touqe specs on the nut


CAUTION: Following procedure must be used to retain proper pinion bearing preload. Failure to follow procedure may result in premature axle assembly or component failure. Ensure pinion bearing preload is checked before disassembly, as previous pinion bearing preload will be used during reassembly.


1. Raise and support vehicle. Scribe reference mark on drive shaft-to-pinion flange on differential for reassembly reference. Remove bolts and "U" joint straps at pinion flange on differential.
Disconnect drive shaft from differential.
2. Remove rear wheels and brake drums to prevent any drag that may affect pinion bearing preload reading. Using INCH-lb. torque wrench, measure amount of force required to rotate pinion. This is pinion bearing preload. Record pinion bearing preload for reassembly reference.
3. Using Holder (6719), hold pinion flange. Remove pinion nut and washer. Scribe reference mark on pinion flange-to-pinion for reassembly reference. Using appropriate puller, remove pinion flange from pinion. Remove oil seal from axle housing.


1. Ensure oil seal surface in axle housing is clean. Coat lip of oil seal with gear lube. Install oil seal using appropriate seal installer. Drive oil seal into axle housing until oil seal installer contacts axle housing.
2. Install pinion flange on pinion with reference mark aligned. Using appropriate pinion flange installer, install pinion flange on pinion.

CAUTION: Washer must be installed on pinion with convex side of washer facing outward (away from pinion).

3. Install washer on pinion with convex side of washer facing outward (away from pinion). Install NEW pinion nut. Tighten pinion nut to 210 ft. lbs. (285 N.m). Rotate pinion several times to seat pinion bearings.

CAUTION: DO NOT overtighten or loosen then retighten pinion nut when adjusting pinion bearing preload. If pinion nut is overtightened, collapsible spacer on pinion must be replaced.

4. Rotate pinion using INCH-lb. torque wrench. Rotating torque should be equal to reading recorded in removal step 2) , plus 5 INCH lbs. (.056 N.m). If rotating torque is low, tighten pinion nut in small increments until proper rotating torque is obtained.
5. To install remaining components, reverse removal procedure using NEW "U" joint straps and bolts. Ensure all reference marks are aligned. Tighten bolts to specification. Check lubricant level and add if necessary.

I need torque specs.for head and centerhead when replacing new gaskets.

never have used a torque wrench to install toilet tanks. Put gasket on tank and insert bolts with rubbers washers through gasket and set tank on bowl in a level and straight postion and start nuts tightening them evenly until tank starts to snug to bowl. Hand tight is usually sufficient, you will see the rubber gasket and washers will compress to bowl and tank forming a seal (EVENLY) and tank will be firm to bowl. DO NOT superman torque these nuts! Compare the torque to finger strength on a wing nut. Hope this helps ,"if I understood the question."

Roof gasket on rv a/c

Try not to compress gasket past 1/2 it's original thickness. Most of the factory ones have tabs that stick down, and supposedly when they touch the roof, it's far enough, which is about same as 1/2. I use my cordless with the torque setting on it, at about 2-3 until I see how far that draws down, then increase/decrease as needed from there.Once i feel it's 1/2 way, I torque all at same setting on drill to make sure all equal.
