balancer-crank bolt torque--chasing the big one
2 questions. i am swapping my factory style balancer from my 455 to my 400. i think it will be fine on the different sized motor, if not please let me know.
question 2: my torque wrench only goes to 100 ft lbs. the spec for the balancer bolt is 160 ft lbs. Here's my procedure: i cleaned the male and female threads. i lubricated the threads and under the bolt head with 30 wt and made sure i used the proper thick washer. i used my torque wrench to tighten the bolt to 100 ft lbs in steps. using a breaker bar, i then tightened the bolt slightly less than an additional 1/8 turn, in 3 steps. any thoughts at my final torque? thanks.
oh and Happy Easter!
