I know the 8 rocker assembly bolts to the head are 8.7 ft-lbs according to the Endwrench article.

But was is the torque spec for the bolt at the end of the shaft? (there are 2 - one front on each end of the rocker assembly). The photo below shows a loose bolt.....this is the one I want to make sure is torqued correctly.

Howdy, looks like its the bolt that secures the rocker shaft. According to my FSM for '90-'94 EJ2.2E, it's suppose to be only 3.6 ft-lb (0.5 Kg-m). But it's not a critical bolt, you could just wing it with the feel.

Nice looking rockers by the way, do they come like that or did you do something else to it?

Have fun :)

It's a freshly rebuilt motor.....so it is quite clean all around. :)

I think me being near it is making it dirtier!:burnout:

Thanks for the info.
