Torque wrench vs temp

Postby cowboy » Mon Jan 31, 2005 5:19 pm

:oops: Seems like I should know this but I don't. It is supposed to be in the mid 30's the rest of the week and I would like fit my rings to the cyl bore and torque the rods and head on.

:shock: My question is will the temp through off my torque wernch calibration? I thought I heard somewhere the temp when torquing should be about 70 deg. 8)

70 Deg is a standard temp, The torque wrench should not deviate an appreciable amount in the lower temps.

Never heard that one. I'm sure somewhere where its super critical temp may be a factor but I can tell you in all my years as an A/C tech I've never been taught or told anything about that. Even at GE school in cinncy they never mentioned it. So what I'm saying, if the world's aircraft engines do not care, I can't believe in tractor world it would matter.

Never heard of that one too! :shock: I remember I had a warrant officer ask me "What's the torque on that fitting son".My reply was "German sir"
"Guten Tight".

:D Thanks guys
I've always belived in do it right the first time. I missed a whole month and a half mowing because I needed to change the head gasket. Ant
d so the head was off better lap the valves. I'm this far better check the rings and put in new bearings etc. etc. :roll: :roll:

I don't think it'll matter much, Cowboy. You'll need to retorque the head bolts after you run the engine for a while anyway and, if you do it right, maybe it'll be warm then. Your initial torque figure should seal it easily for the first running.
