240D head bolt/rod bolt questions

Hello,

First question refers to the proper rod bolt torque. The Manual I have states 30-37 ft.lbs. followed by an additional 90 degree turn. I understand the procedure but don't know what ft.lbs. to torque it to. So does it really mean to set it to anything betwwen 30-37 ft.lbs? I would think it woulod be more specific than that?

Second, what size is the 6 and 12 point head bolts and what size and pitch is the thread for these? Thanks for the help!

it means that you torque to that

value say 35 lbs then turn an additional 90 degrees for the stretch on the bolt.

Toms right, just torque to spic then use the breaker bar and do another 90 degrees. (do one at a time using the proper sequence) be sure and blow the holes out with the compressed air to be sure there clear of oil an crud.
