Looking for a set (20) head bolts for an 07 VK56 motor, dealer wants about 10 bux each! anyone know where I can get these for cheaper?
Dude, thank you so very much! :redblob"General concept: http://www.nissantechnews.com/pages/uploaded_pdfs/pdf_article_97.pdf
The service manual for the Titan may have the specific measurement for the Titan bolts.
I do understand they are troque to yield and typically only a one time use. However a few engine builders have told me it would be alright to reuse them IF they havent stretched, the motor is an 07 and only has alittle over 7K on it, never towed, never had any heavy loads othere than a dirt bike in the bed. Im pretty confidient that Ill be ok if they all measure up alright.They are torque to yield, one time use, bolts. I would not reuse them, if you do you will be pulling the heads back off very soon.
Contact ARP and see if they have some thing that will work: ARP-bolts.com | The Official Site of Automotive Racing Products, Inc.
I heard its something like 32ft lbs then 60degrees then 18ft lbs, not quite sure if that is 100%. I will post it when I actually find it and do it.for something like head bolts, I would be buying a new set. I would go with ARP fasteners because they most likely will not stretch. what is the torque spec on these? do you first torque them to a setting, then go over them again to final setting? or a one time value?
Thank you so very much for this info! I greatly appreciate it! but due to alot of investigation and research, I will not be pulling the heads for basic clean up and gasket matching. Just gonna slap the cams in and call it a day :teethmastHere is the stock torque values:
Tool number : KV10112100 (BT-8653-A)
Step a : 98.1 N·m (10 kg-m, 72 ft-lb)
Step b : 0 N·m Loosen in the reverse order of
Step c : 44.1 N·m (4.5 kg-m, 33 ft-lb)
Step d : 60° degrees clockwise
Step e : 60° degrees clockwise
The ARP's will a a standard torque value, they are not torque to yield.
