1936 Buick 233 Special Series 40 toque connecting rods

Recommended Posts

Hello All,

Does anybody know what the torque specs should be for 1936 Buick straight eight 233 (series 40) connecting rods. Is it supposed to be 45lbs? Same as the 1949 Buick 248 cubic inch. I think my rods might not be toque enough. They have slight movement back and forth on the crank especially when the engine is hot.

Thanks

Robert

The tightness of the rods has nothing to to with any lateral movement of the rods on the journal. How much is "slight"? a certain amount is normal

Well,</SPAN>

The slight movement is not up and down more like front to back (front of engine to back). I would say that the slight movement might be around the thinness of two sheets of photo copy paper. A little more when the engine is hot. </SPAN>

Is that normal?

Thanks for your reply :) </SPAN>
