Rotor torques and, stuff - questions

Going to replace my warped rotors and install rebuilt single piston calps on my 67 1600 - specifically, should I use a thread locker on the socket allen screws that hold on the rotors? Or anti-sieze? I have replaced these things years ago and don't remember.

I suspect I will find out whether I used one or, the other when I try to loosen these mothers.

Torque values anybody? My Haynes is missing that page.

TIA

Haynes sez 70 lb/ft for caliper securing bolts and 48 lb/ft for the disk to hub bolt. The second figure seems like a lot for the little screws that hold the disk to the hub itself. For sure you would want to use anti-seize on these... they can go anywhere with the wheel in place, and rusting in is the usual situation.

they seem to imply that the 'center' bolt goes to 48 ft. lbs. Which would shear the little locator (on a 1600? I thought it was a 320-era innovation?) or absolutely destroy your bearings in front.

And let the hub come loose in the rear, as it should go to 300 or so ft/lbs....

bah.

But I use anti- sieze on the little screw (it rusts stuck) and on the studs, too, and have never had a problem...

sat evening before dinner took about a half hour per side.

I guess the last time I did this I used anti-seize.

I am sure glad I'm the one who does work on this car...

Also, I used 265ft lbs on the caliper bleed nipples - NOW, THAT IS NICE AND TIGHT!
