ARP has an installation method for torquing the head studs that differs from the FSM.
You guys know which one is correct? FSM has the "back off 90 degrees and retighten" bullshit
ARP just says ease into the torque spec ie 20-35-50ftlbs..
while shopping for new o-rings for the pickup I saw that the morroso pickup comes with an oring so I just bought that instead.
HLAs and cams back in. New cam seals too. I broke one of the cam cap bolts so I didn't get to scratch that off my list yet. Luckily the extractor pulled it out.
I'll get a new bolt from the dealer on monday. Pickup should be here tomorrow and then I can mate the pan while I still have it on the stand. Need new half moon gaskets for the heads and then I can seal the valve covers.
Then I hang it, bolt up clutch, mate up trans and drop the bitch in the bay.
Chris, do you have an ej20g service manual?
Reason I broke one of the cam cap bolts is I used a wrong torque spec from a different manual that said T1 for A,B bolts was 7 ft lbs and T2 for the other 4 was 14.7 ft lbs... I found a screen grab from a correct ej20g fsm and they were ALL 7 ftlbs.
