Cylinder head torque spec 2009 GSXR 750

this has to be done with a torque gauge, you tighten the head bolts to a specific torque, then a bit more not sure of what then you use a gauge and turn the wrench quarter of a turn I think but this is just to let you know you need a torque gauge, not a wrench although you need one of them as well. JUST PHONE A DEALER MATE usually helpful.

Craftsman instructions

You can not use that model for the torque you require. A larger capacity torque wrench will be needed.

Things You'll Need

Adjustable wrench
  • Pitman arm puller
  • Torque wrench
  • Show More

    Park the vehicle on a level surface and make sure the front wheels are pointing straight ahead. Make sure the vehicle is in park (or in gear if you have manual transmission) and set the parking brake.

    Disconnect the pitman arm from the steering box from underneath the front of the vehicle by turning the holding bolt in a counterclockwise direction with an adjustable wrench. Place a pitman arm puller (available at auto parts stores) over the pitman arm and tighten the nut on the puller in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench until the pitman arm loosens from the steering box shaft. Remove the pitman arm and the puller.

    Open the hood and loosen the lock nut on top of the steering box from the engine compartment with an adjustable wrench in a counterclockwise direction.

    Place a torque wrench on the steering shaft and turn the wrench one complete turn. Make sure the torque reading is approximately 2 inch pounds. Tighten the adjusting nut on top of the steering box (it comes out of the center of the lock nut) in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench one half turn if the torque wrench reading is too low. Loosen the nut in a counterclockwise direction if the reading is too high.

    Rotate the steering shaft with the torque wrench again. Make adjustments to the steering box adjusting nut as described in Step 4, if needed, until the correct reading is obtained on the torque wrench.

    Make sure the steering wheel is in the straight ahead position and reattach the pitman arm to the bottom of the steering shaft on the steering box. Tighten the holding nut in a clockwise direction with an adjustable wrench until the pitman arm seats into place.

    Tighten the lock nut on top of the steering box with an adjustable wrench in a clockwise direction. Close the hood

    How can i reach a torque setting of 305nm when my wrench only reaches a max of 200nm please any one help i am thinking that it can be done in 2 stages yes or no

    It is possible to use a simple torque wrench extension bar, which fits onto the square drive of the torque wrench.
    At the other end of the extension bar is a male square drive for the socket. This increases the leverage of the torque wrench by a ratio which is the total length of the wrench plus bar divided by the length of the torque wrench only. You multiply the torque reading by this ratio.
    Note that NO increased torque is obtained by fitting an extension on the handle end of the torque wrench. The applied torque will still be the same as the torque wrench reading in this case.
    Then there is a more expensive tool, a torque multiplier. These are often fitted to the output shafts of winches etc, and consist of a small gearbox which fits on the square drive of the torque wrench. On the other side is a male square drive for the socket.
    They are geared in various multiplier ratios from 4:1 to as much as 40:1. On the gearbox casing is a reaction bar which is braced against something to keep it in place as the torque is applied.
    They are expensive but you can hire them also.

    Removing broken sparkplugs

    having been in that situation before i was able to use a large flat blade srew driver to turn it out by twisting on the ground electrode. however if the threaded sectio does not turn somewhat freely you will be in aworld of hurt as you have likely heated the aluminnum up with the excessive torque causing it to melt the threads to the steel plug. you may also want to try reverse drill bits (matco make the best set in my opinion) as when it bites it tends pull whats being drilled out with out have to really drill it out.

    Have drained tank and cannot get old element out.Have torqued the socket and it wont budge.

    Hello.. Spray some WD-40 on it and let it sit over night. Then do not use a torque wrench, just a big old wrench with a cheater bar if you have one and I assure you that it will come off. Regards, Joe
    PS a torque wrench is never for removal, only installation.

    Where do i get a replacement trigger, mine is

    If your local Sears store can't help you, try looking to see if you have a Snap-On, Corn-well, or Matco tool distributor in your area. Many air tools are manufactured by companies who make tools for different distributors. I work in a shop, and have found that many of the tool trucks have parts that'll work on other brands of tools besides their own.

    Can't find a rebuild kit for POWERMATE air impact wrenck model o024-0099sp.

    well pretty much IR (ingersoll rand) makes almost every impact out there. So you can try to navigate their web site, call sears or if you have a Snap On dealer, or matco, or cornwell, or Mac tools. Just call or check out the snap on website see what the dealer for your area is. Tell them what you got and they should be able to find you a kit. They are in the tool business and keeping mechanics wrench'n .
