Post Cylinder Head Torque Specs 83 NA 944

I recently purchased a 83 with a busted timing belt, and will be replacing the head this weekend (6 bent valves).

I only have a Haynes, so I need to find the torques specs for the head and tightening pattern.


My $400 944

Any help would be appreciated, also if there is a good place to get a copy of the Porsche manuals on CD LMK.

Thanks

Nice car! Welcome to the board.


I will try to look those specs up for you at lunch..I do remember that they are a bit cryptic on the early....ie ...they changed with an update or something like that.......


anyone else?

From the Factory 944 manual for 82 an onwards (89 onwards has different specs which are 60 degrees instead of 90).

1: 20NM
2: 90 degrees torque angel
3: 90 degrees torque angel

You should get the manuals and PET program, makes things a lot easier. This link contain some useful downloads : http://www.cannell.co.uk/944%20Reference.htm

That was the confusing part...... I read there about the 90deg thing. Did my heads that way.....then found out that it had been changed to an actual final torque value....


My head is still doing fine though......


Anyone know this update?


Hugh?

I can get the PDF files, but I can't get the full download of the PET files, it stops after about 10M. Is anyone else having the same problem?
