RE: rocker arm torque specs
not finding much help here or at the library. Found Chilton's 2004 GM manual but it has two different torque specs for the rocker arms:
Under REMOVAL & INSTALLATION OF ROCKER ARMS: item 4 states on reassembly to tighten the rocker arm bolts to 14 ft lbs (19Nm) plus 30 degrees.
Under removal and replacng intake manifold gasket item 6 on reinstall says to torque the rocker arm bolts to 89 inch lbs (10Nm) plus 30 degrees.
Does 14 ft lbs equal 89 inch lbs? if so why are the Nm numbers different?
any help out there?
