BangShift.com Can You Reuse Rod And Main Bolts? Torque To Angle And Torque To Yield, Everything You Need To Know About Fasteners On Gen V GM Engines
I remember building some of my first engines, using parts we had in the garage, which included used rod bolts, main bolts, and head bolts. We weren’t building big power combos, or things under boost, and I was on a budget. I never had a fastener failure, so they must have been okay, but those were traditional bolts in that they were torqued to a spec. All we did was torque them to factory specs and we were good to go. Modern engines have migrated from those methods and instead use either Torque To Yield, or Torque To Angle, fasteners in the engine. While similar, they are a bit different when it comes to assembly and in this video from Jefferson you are going to see just how to use them properly in your engine.
If you’re working on a GM Gen III/IV/V engine, it’s essential to know how to tighten torque to angle bolts properly. In this video, we’ll show you step-by-step how to tighten torque to angle bolts. We explain what torque to angle (TTA) bolts are and the differences between TTA and torque to yield (TTY). We’ll show you the tools you’ll need to complete this task, including a torque wrench, angle gauge, and sockets. Next, we’ll walk you through the process of tightening torque to angle bolts on a GM Gen V engine and demonstrate how to torque the bolts to the recommended specification and then how to rotate them to the correct angle. By the end of this video, you’ll have the knowledge and confidence to tighten torque to angle bolts on a GM Gen III/IV/V engine correctly. Whether you’re a professional mechanic or a DIY enthusiast, this video is a must-watch if you want to ensure the optimal performance and longevity of your GM Gen V engine. So, let’s get started!
