Installing head....need torque specs

Dad just had his 2.2 rebuilt and is installing the head back on the motor. I found the specs on the head bolts, but I need to know if there are any specs on torquing the lifters? It's a '96 model 2.2 if it makes and difference in the years.

Thanks,
Chris

Re: Installing head....need torque specs

I'm guesing your talking about the rocker arm nuts. If so the spec for 94-97 is 22 ftlbs

Re: Installing head....need torque specs

Step 2 on the head bolts is to tighten the bolts down an extra 90 degrees (1/4 turn) to stretch the bolts. Do it with a breaker bar. This is in addition to the torque specs mentioned in step 1. The bolts are torque-to-yield, that's why they are one use only. Don't re-use old headbolts, they've already been stretched.

I torque the rockers with the valves closed, this way you're not fighting the spring and screwing up your reading.

Re: Installing head....need torque specs

This thread is about 5 years old. If the guy didn't figure out torque specs by now then he's in trouble. Stop bringing up old threads!

Re: Installing head....need torque specs

why don't you try reading in the middle of this thread to find that someone "actually" searched for a answer and found a old thread, then figured out he couldn't get the knowledge that he needed to carry on so he asked a question... this is what really pisses me off about this forum, instead of people answering questions they bitch about everything else other than just answering them... if you dont want to answer questions, don't comment or don't be apart of a ****ing forum!!!!! thank!!! matt...
