How tight do you torque the crankshaft, rod and head bolts? I didn't see anything in my Ford Service book and tend to over tighten things? Thanks for your help!
In short,there are no torque values. I usually tighten the mains with an original wrench and then snug it to where the cotter pin holes line up. Rod,I use maybe 30-35 lbs,(an 8 inch wrench)The general point on head bolts is 50-55.
Crank shaft main bolts, 80 foot pounds, and then pull to the key hole.
Rod bolts 30 foot pounds, and then pull to key hole if needed.
Heads bolts, what Jack said.
The Model T predates SAE torque standards for bolts. Any torque given today for Model Ts is no more than a SWAG.
Apply this sticker to your torque wench as a reminder.
80lbs might be a bit much for a 1/2" bolt.
