44 (in lbs) or 4 (ft lbs)

Long stud with nut? I'm not real clear what your talking about. The covers have four bolts each side, the passenger side cover has the stud that has a (or did have at one time) spark plug wire loom attachment (Passenger side front). The drivers side might have had one too, I'm not sure.

Drivers side rear stud has double duty as a valve cover holddown bolt and the wastegate sol valve/egr valve vac control mount on top of the stud and are held on with a couple of small nuts (on top of valve cover) .

I just put a new one on the "new" GN tonight, I hope I got the 4 ft. lbs. right since I normally use about 10.


All the gaskets have that tab I guess since my cork ones had it. I guess its kinda like something left over from the prehistoric days like Steve Wood's tail.

I know all. Envy me, peons. And envy my p... never mind.

Salvage,

I started to buy an "inch lbs" torque wrench once. I started to do a lot of things once.

I usually torque them down with a 1/4" ratchet till they are fairly snug. They'll probably leak anyway, no matter what torque specs you use. I think more than 4 bolts were needed! But I didn't design it.

Prehensile tails are very much in vogue these days...got one of them, don't need utensils...

I usually use the "grunt" method. Valve covers require 1/2 grunt. Intake bolts take 1 1/2 grunts. Turbo mounting bolts take 2 1/2 grunts. Lug nuts take 4 grunts.
