i recently had a jammed spark plug stuck in my head.. i removed the head and had someone get it out for me so all is well.. now comes time to put it all back together... but i needed to know does anyone know or know where to go to find wut the specs are for the torque on the head bolts?
get a shop manual, dude! that will cost you about 15 bucks and give you the
torque specs and tightening sequence for anything screwed to that car...
...you started this project a really long time ago... :doh:
I hope you removed the head with the correct sequence!!! :doh:
if you didn't then you've definately twisted the head!! AHH!! not good!, i did it with my mate's datsun about two years back cause i didn't have a clue as to what i was doin', lol.
i did take off the head bolts with the correct sequence.. but i just wasnt sure about the toruqe specs.. i have one of those books umm haynes i think .. but i cant seem to find the specs in there. is htere a site that might have it?
So far i can only find it for either 1.5L '87 Civic or '88-'90 CRX.
Heres the link for the CRX, might be the same pretty much: http://www.quickhonda.net/specs.htm
And heres the one for the '87 Civic: http://www.faqfarm.com/Q/What_is_the_head_bolt_tightening_sequence_and_torq ue_for_a_1987_Honda_Civic_1.5_ltr_4_cyl
