Im gonna use the arp thread lube i just got off phone with the mechanic the installed mine he used 30w oil but since im redoing mine ima go with the arp thread lube and tge optimum black permatex and torque in 3 steps would i go 30 60 90 then 100?
The ones on this engine was torqued with 30w oil and when i checked torque it came to 130 so i guess ima have to go back to 130 any less would mess up the gaskets i thinkThe 30/60/90 is because the 90 is last
Known tourque on TTY BOLTS before the 90 degree turn that you will NOT DO on studs.
Any time you torque anything, you split it in roughly thirds.
So 35,70,100 is ok. Some psycho ocd guys like me actually go 34/67/100.
Also remember you should “warm” the torque wrench on a different bolt first. Like the bolts holding block to stand are way over 34. So set to first level, go do 5 cycles of it clicking
To torque that first, then swap socket and start the torque process.
Doing 30/60/90/100 probably wouldn’t hurt anything, but that 90-100 is hard to get accurate moving that small amount at that high torque. The head moving down in equal amounts is key
