Stripped down my 998 engine at the end of last year and found ALL the bolts including mains and conrods well coated in thread lock; don't know why as pistons were standard and it hadn't had a rebore and was using oil.

 

Just got the rebored block and new pistons/conrods back from my machine shop and he's bead blasted the locktight off; inspected everything and pronounced everything OK.

 

Looking at https://www.theminif...ormatted/page-2 gives 37lbft for the conrods  and 63lbft for the mains for A+.

 

So the question is; is this a dry OR oiled figure??? (or more locktight :whistling: !)

These figures are oiled, on the threads and under the fastener faces.

Thanks; as a further thought, are all the figures "oiled" unless otherwise stated; one or two specially say "dry only"?

Everything in the engine are wet figures.
