Common Torque Values/Settings

Post by mikey999 » Sun Sep 04, 2011 12:00 pm

Screw threads should always be lubricated before tightening (i.e wet torqued)
Below is a list of torque setting for each of the main models of TE-20.

If no other values are available, then use these below:
1/4″ - 6-9 lb. Ft.
5/16″ UNC - 12-18 Ib. Ft.
5/16″ UNF - 14-20 lb. Ft.
3/8″ UNC - 22-32 lb. Ft.
3/8″ UNF - 27-36 lb. Ft.
7/16″ UNC - 40-55lb. Ft.
7/16″ UNF - 40-60 lb. Ft.
1/2″ UNC - 55-80 lb. Ft.

Mikey

Compression - 600 lb/sq.in (42 kg/sq.cm)

Valve Clearances - .012" (.305mm)

Decompression Clearance - .030" (.76mm) - Cylinders 1, 2 & 4
- .045" (1.14mm) - Cylinder 3
(Information on setting these clearances is below)

Cylinder Head Nuts - 75-80 lb.ft (10.4-11 kg.m)
(Tighten all nuts evenly in order shown in picture below to a final reading of those above)

Injector Nuts - 12-14 lb.ft (1.6-1.9 kg.m)
(Tighten both nuts evenly to a final torque reading of the figures above)



-The valve clearances are .012" (.305mm) on both inlet and exhaust -with a cold engine-
Each piston has to be at TDC (Top Dead Centre) on compression stoke as you adjust the valves. To accomplish this turn the engine until you see valves on one cylinder both rocking, (that is one just closing the other just opening). Now turn the engine EXACTLY one revolution and you have the valves at TDC on compression stroke. Now you can adjust them.
Do this with each piston, one after the other, and use the firing order 1-3-4-2 (1 being closest to the radiator).

After adjusting the valve clearances you must reset decompression cam clearances as as follows.
(1) Locate the decompression shaft so that the slot at rear end is vertical. This is facilitated by a hole in No 2 pedestal extension, through which a dowel (3/16"dia) can be inserted to engage in a corresponding hole in the decompression shaft
(2) With the shaft firmly located , loosen the clamp bolt of each cam and , with the valves fully closed,on each cylinder (TDC on compression stroke), adjust the clearance between cam and the rocker arm to .030"(.76mm) for for Nos. 1, 2 and 4 rocker arms, and .045" (1.14mm) for No. 3.
(3) Retighten clamp bolt after setting each cam . Remove dowel.



Struggling to find the tightening sequence for this one, so please bear with. If anyone has one they can send me so i can add it, it would be greatly appreciated

Compression - 90-100 lb/sq.in (6.33-7.03 kg/sq.cm)

Valve Clearances - Inlet .010" (.25mm)
-Exhaust .012" (.3mm)
(Information on setting these clearances is below)

Cylinder Head Nuts - 60-65 lb.ft (8.25-8.95 kg.m)
(Gradually tighten each nut, in order shown in picture below, to a final reading of those above)



The clearances must be adjusted when the piston is at TDC.
A handy trick is to remove the Sparkplug from the cylinder you want to set, turn it manually as close to TDC as you can get it by looking through hole - a long punch or similar in the hole may give a good indication of when the cylinder stops rising (?) (Dont drop anything in the hole! :oops: ). There is a hole in the flywheel that lines up with a hole in the engine mounting flange, however, for Engines after serial number S8996E, the hole will put piston 1 at TDC, but for engines before this, the hole is at 10 degrees
before.
OR
Mark the plug leads: 1,2,3,4. (firing order on distributor cap is 1,3,4,2). Take out the plugs. Remove fuel tank, rocker cover breather pipe and rocker cover. (Have new gaskets ready incase they need replacing ) Turn the motor clockwise with the crank handle until No.4 valves JUST begin to rock. No1 will now be at TDC. Set No.1 valves to, Inlet .010 Exhaust .012 ( cold )
Turn motor clockwise untill no2 valves rock. set no3
Turn motor clockwise untill no1 valves rock. set no4
Turn motor clockwise untill no3 valves rock. set no2
ALWAYS only turn engine clockwise to set valve clearances and if you turn it to far go around again!
