Torque Specs for 24 Flint

I need to know how much torque for the head bolts on my E6 engine and also for the manifold. Still need a 4 blade fan for same.

Re: Torque Specs for 24 Flint

You can probably go to 55-60 ft.lbs on a cast iron flathead six engine. Torque values didn't come into widespread use until after our cars were built.Check the Van Pelt website for suggested torque values. What is important is to tighten from the inside out(follow the correct torque sequence),so as not to stress the casting and gasket.

Re: Torque Specs for 24 Flint

There is a torque chart that I have been using lately, the torque values are listed for sae grade 2, 5 and 8...7/16" grade 5 is probably what you have for head bolts/studds and is close to the value Ross mentions above....I would recomend the lower end of the value as it is real easy to pull threads in our old cast iron blocks.... http://constructionmisc.tpub.com/TM-5-3710-200-13P/css/TM-5-3710-200-13P_22.htm
