most rockers do not have a torque spec depends on the engine some have a lash spec which has to be set with a feeler gauge but it is different for every engine

No, head bolt torque is much higher than rocker arms.

it varies from motor to motor the rods are any where from 100 - 150 in a kit. then you need to find someone to put them in. you may just need to re torque the rocker arms

you don't really torque them, you tighten little by little as you shake them up and down until they are snug, the tighten just a little more, too much will leave you with bent pushrodsAnswerActuall, the 87 uses hydrolic roller lifters, so the procedure would be to just tighten them down. I believe that the torque spec is something like 24 ft. lbs. (you should look it up). Dont just tighten them down until the pushrods appear to be tight (as described in the first answer) or the nuts may back out and you will have big problems. Unless you have changed pushrod length or installed aftermarket rocker arms. If this is the case, you may need to purchase shims to maintain the proper rocker arm geometry.

the engine your talking about should have hydraulic lifters in which case you dont adjust them you torque them down tight and any local automotive supply store should be able to tell you how much tourque to apply!

You have to much lift on the camshaft lobe, They make a long slot rocker arm that looks like a stock rocker arm but it will not cut into the stud. The slot is where the rocker arm fits over the stud. If you are not haveing coil bind problems with the valve springs are broken springs then you can keep the cam that's in it and just use the long slot rocker arms are roller rockers to fix you problem.

The Rocker grossed $8,767,338 worldwide.

Every situation is different, and it's impossible to give an exact answer to that question. Increasing valve lift by 10% will usually increase hp by a few, but mostly in the upper rpm range, which may or may not make the vehicle run better at normal speeds.

The Rocker grossed $6,409,528 in the domestic market.

My 2001 2.7L Dodge Intrepid se has a rocker arm or lifter stuck and I'm hoping for a cheap fix by resetting all the nuts back to there original torque. If anyone knows the numbers please let me know, since 3 places tried to make me pay way to much money for a simple answer. Thank you, Chris.

A rocker panel is used in rock concerts and since it has to do with music instruments it should cost about the same as any electric guitar depending upon how good it is and the brand name.

Connecting rod bearing nuts are torqued. How much you should torque the nuts depends on the year, make and engine.

You should torque the head bolts by alternating from and to end, working towards the center. The head bolts should be torqued in 40 pound intervals.

No. The recommended torque has more to do with how much force the fastener exerts than preventing it from coming out.

How much torque? I don't know. Should it have torque? Always. I have a motor that can spin close to 10'000 RPM, but I can stop it with my finger because it has very low torque. A good way to remember this is, the faster it spins, the lower the torque. You can increase the torque by using a gear chain to gear-up, trading RPM for torque. Gearing Down is the reverse.

no,not that i can think of, but the fact they are holding you in their arms should say something in itself.

You shouldn't be able to, if you are getting too much noise it may be time for new lifters, but a 4.0 will go quite a while after it starts making lifter noise.

in stock form 303 HP and 323 ft·lb of torque.

Torque values are only listed in the vehicles repair manual or service manual and vary depending on year, make, and model.


how much torque does 1990 Buick century 3.3 have

1998 and later--168 in lbs, for rocker arm bolts. step 2 rotate an additional 30-degrees, 3.1 engine,

That will depend on the year, make, model, and engine size.
