Vehicle 1995 Accord LX non vtec with estimated more than 200,000 miles
(odometer is dead). Inner spark plug wells leaking badly and we need
to replace the bottom seals. As far as I understand Rocker Arm
assembly needs to be removed to get to the seals.
For reassembly the torque specification according to the FSM is 16 lbf-
ft for 8mm bolts and 8.7 lbf-ft for 6mm bolts.
Question 1: is lbf-ft the same as torque wrench settings: ft/lb.
And probably the main question: do I read it right – 8.7 foot per
pound? Is that all the torque that those bolts need?
My torque wrench settins start with 20 or 25 ft/lb. What is going to
happen if I use my torque wrench and set all bolts to 25 ft/lb. Will
I damage or destroy anything?
Appreciate your help,
