Torque Bolts on r/60

Post by schrader7032 »

Not sure I've seen a published list, but I pulled the following off the Yahoo /2 forum, posted by a guy who has done an incredible restoration of an R69S. He doesn't guarantee their correctness:

- oil drain plug: 15 ft-lbs
- cylinder heads: 25 ft-lbs
- gearbox cover nuts: 10 ft-lbs
- generator bolt: 14 ft-lbs
- magneto bolt: 14 ft-lbs
- drive shaft coupling nut: 90 ft-lbs
- flywheel cap screw: 150 ft-lbs
- Drive shaft drain/fill 10 ft-lbs (???)
- Axle spindle nuts: 25 ft-lbs
- General torque guidelines
- M3 10 in-lbs
- M4 20 in-lbs
- M5 40 in-lbs
- M6 (SW10) 70 in-lbs
- M8 (SW13) 14 ft-lbs
- M10 (SW15) 29 ft-lbs
- M12 (SW19) 49 ft-lbs
- M14 79 ft-lbs

I have the multi-language workshop manual, and here's what if lists. The value of mkp is kilopound meters. 1 mkp is 7.233 ft-lbs.

cylinder head bolts - 3.5
flywheel retaining screw - 22
6 hexagonal gearbox cover nuts - 1.7
oil drain plug on final drive - 2.3
allen head screws for shifting fork retainment - 2.3
drive pinion securing nut in final drive - 11
grooved M16x1.5 for fastening coupling flange to gearbox output shaft - 22
with old execution (grooved nut M14x1.5) - 12
hex nut for fastening coupling cup to drive shaft (with woodruff key) - 13
hex nut for fastening coupling cup to drive shaft (without woodruff key, R50 starting frame 643190; R60 starting frame 1811495; R69S starting frame 662145) - 24
generator armature on crankshaft - 2
ignition magneto rotor on camshaft - 2

Check multiple sources before application of torque and try and use common sense.

Is there a list of how many pounds of torque for all the bolts. Thanks
