please can you tell me how tight the bolts on my t5 clutch cover sholud be done up as the haynes manual says 5.79 lbf ft in scootering they done a article on removeing the clucth they said 11 lbf ft to 12 what is right as i dont want to strip the threads if i do it up to tight thanks Gary[:dance1:]
Sorry got that wrong in scootering they say 11.6 to 14.5 if i try to tighten it this tight it feels as if the thread is going to strip
I am not familiar with lbf ft. torque settings and I don’t have a conversion sheet now with me.
I generally tighten the cover bolts at 1,8 kgfm or up to 2,0 kgfm no more. If you feel something is organizing to give you a bad moment keep on the lower settings of 1,6kgfm. If even at this low setting you will have a bad present, that means the case threads should be renewed. In this case it’s not a big deal, it is fast and easy if you have the right tools, then find the new diameter bolts to fit.
