Hello Guys,

I finally had the chance to replace the timing belts. Doing the job takes time to do it. This site helped me a lot. I really appreciate this GREAT site.
Now that I replaced the belts and the tensioner bearings. I run into a problem finding the torque setting on the #1 Tensioner bearing nuts? #2 Tensioner block nuts? #3 Camshaft journal nuts Which I removed and I use a matchbook cover to lock the camshaft from moving when I remove the belts. I learned that from this site too. #4 Camshaft/valve cover nuts? I looked at the manual but I cannot find these settings. I'm looking at the wrong places I know. Somebody out there know where to look or have done this kind of things.

Thank you,

Have you considered taking it to a dealer?

Most of them have people called mechanics - I'm sure they'd know!!

Rudy,
This is from the workshop manual for my '79, I would imagine they would be the same for your car. The book gives it in kg-m, I converted them to lb-ft for you. This is how they are worded in the book:

Nut, Camshaft Cap - 0.9 kg-m (6.5 lb-ft, seems kind of low but that is what it says. You could loosen another one to get a feel for how tight they are)

Nut for timing belt stretcher - 6.6 kg-m (48 lb-ft)

Screw, water pump cover and belt stretcher support - 2.5 kg-m (18 lb-ft)

It doesn't give anything for the camshaft/valve cover.

Pete,
Thanks for the information, I appreciate it. I must have missed it from the workshop manual. I stop short last night because of the torque values.
The removal of all the parts that is in the way to replace the timing belts takes time, But I enjoy the work + I got other cars to use. This site gave me a lot of great courage to do all the work. I LOVE IT!!!
