Hi

 

First post - so first introducing myself - I am a 14 year old doing up a 1990 998cc Flame Red mini with the help (? ;-)) of my Dad.  

 

All going well to date, with engine out of the car, cleaned up, painted etc and now going back in.  

 

We cannot find the recommended torque settings (in the Haynes, or on here) for the bolts that go into the gearbox for the bracket (KKU10080) that the lower steady engine steady bar uses.  

 

I attach a photo of the relevant bolts (not from our car, found on elsewhere on this site whilst trying to find the answer.

Please can somebody help, and perhaps also advise where we should have been able to find it so we know for next time!

 

Thanks

Harry

If you do not find torque values on a manual then as long as you know the size of the bolt / fastener you are using then you can use a guide like this

Ps Haynes does have it but it calls them studs.

 

further looking for the same size and thread form gives 22-25Nm as being acceptable.

Cars prior to about 84 - 85 had Studs and Nuts here.

it just looks like they did not bother distinguishing between the thread form or the material it went into later on.

No, they didn't.

 

When reading these later manuals, in many areas, they totally ignore earlier cars, in fact, if I recall the titles, they do actually have a year range on them.
