How To Torque Cylinder Head Bolts - EricTheCarGuy

Well this was a fun one to make. I believe I covered everything but if you feel I haven't please let me know in the comments below as well as any tips you might have to add as well. I'm not trying to make a big deal about "pound feet" or "foot pounds" I'm just trying to put that out there, the important thing is that you get the proper torque and get the job done right in my opinion, what you decide to call it is up to you.

Metric always beats American measurements. We civilized folk prefer to have a system which converts sizes (centimeter/meter) in consistent magnitudes. Metric: 10 milimeters in one centimeter 100 centimeters in one meter 1000 meters in one kilometer. The same numbers apply for weights and fluids. American: You guys don't even have anything smaller than inches, you just start making fractions. 12 inches in one foot 3 feet in one yard 1760 yards in a mile The weights and fluids are also all over the place.

10:56  Torque Angle Gauge.  I'm not correcting you because you're right.  Just helping those who might be googling it. I was just fortunate enough to open my ATECH2FR100B today.  It has 50 programmable presets, does torque load, torque angle measurements and has both audible and vibrating alerts as well as a display to tell you how much stank you put on the bolt (once you're finished).  I was previously using the TECH2FR100 which only through using it taught me everything I didn't know about torque wrenches.  Some people don't believe in the digital variety, but I've become a fan after prolonged use enough to buy the best one Snap-On makes.  I know that feel you get when you acquire that tool that makes all the other sockets mean more to you.  My wallet knows, too.  It's the nicest wrench I own.   Great video Eric!

Your fluent chose of word makes you an amazing teacher, so easy to learn from, and all your tips are worth a bounty. Thanks for sharing your skills.

When I blow out the bolt holes, I like to slip a small rubber tube over my air nozzle with the end cut at a 45 degree angle. Then you can put the tube into the hole all the way to the bottom. Without this sometimes the debris wont come out because the air is blowing it back in as it tries to go out. but if the air starts from the bottom of the hole, then it just shoots the debris right out.

How about you do a video on removing head bolts now? That's important too.

Believe it or not the foot pounds only refer to the force being applied to the bolt not the tightness of the bolt itself. That is why the guy tells us to clean thread etc. he is smart not dumb at all.

have you ever found any dildos in a car?

my manual says that when ever the bolt starts making a creaking sound you have to take it out and redo it
