I'm a bit slow on all kinds of "word description", so I drew this "Master piece" out to ask you guys if Im understanding this "correctly.
I will need to :
Torque the center nut at 150 ft lbs using my beam torque Wrench, draw a line and that's the "MARK 1" on the nut.
then at the next Apex/corner of the nut, draw another line "MARK 2" on the flywheel.
then use breaker bar/impact/whatever I can to move "MARK 1" to "MARK 2" which is around 60 degrees and I'll be at 350 ft lbs ?
I just wanna be 100% sure I'm understanding this correctly, cuz incorrect torque on the flywheel nut = flies out and cut my leg or just take my life, that won't be fun.
excuse my drawing! I stole my nephew's crayons to finish this "project" ...
Also, on the FSM it saids
"Apply thread locking compound to the threads of the Eccentric shaft," sure, I will put some Locitite Red on it.
*the engine I was rebuild has no Locitite on the big locknut* ... *shurgs*
but the next line it saids "Apply sealant to the contact surface of the locknut"
Hmm? I don't think I seen anybody do that, does that mean I should put some silicone on the contact (I assume it means the FLAT side) of the lock nut ?
