Torque Values For Water Pump


Recommended Posts

FYI, original torque specs document was missing torque values for water pump securing bolts and front subframe (crossmember) to car chassis. The values that I posted for the two parts in last couple of days were taken out of Haynes (pages 38 & 171)

I sent PM to williamggruff, who is author of this document in Excel format to kindly add torque values for above two parts.

For reference only:

Thanks for the reference materials and the links.  Quite a lot of work went into that spreadsheet and it will prove very useful, over and over.


Although the Haynes manual shows 20 lb/ft for the water pump bolts (page 38), there are four small bolts and three large bolts securing the water pump.


Since the Haynes manual also shows 6 lb/ft for small timing cover bolts and 18 lb/ft for large timing cover bolts (page 15), I'm going to go with the 6 lb/ft spec for the four small water pump bolts and 18-20 lb/ft for the three large water pump bolts.


I like the guttentite method too, but I like general guidance because of the sensitive nature of aluminum threads.


Regards, Maurice.

    BMW Neue Klasse - a birth of a Sports Sedan

    Unveiling of the Neue Klasse Unveiled in 1961, BMW 1500 sedan was a revolutionary concept at the outset of the '60s. No tail fins or chrome fountains. Instead, what you got was understated and elegant, in a modern sense, exciting to drive as nearly any sports car, and yet still comfortable for four.   The elegant little sedan was an instant sensation. In the 1500, BMW not only found the long-term solution to its dire business straits but, more importantly, created an entirely new

    History of the BMW 2002 and the 02 Series

    In 1966, BMW was practically unknown in the US unless you were a touring motorcycle enthusiast or had seen an Isetta given away on a quiz show.  BMW’s sales in the US that year were just 1253 cars.  Then BMW 1600-2 came to America’s shores, tripling US sales to 4564 the following year, boosted by favorable articles in the Buff Books. Car and Driver called it “the best $2500 sedan anywhere.”  Road & Track’s road test was equally enthusiastic.  Then, BMW took a cue from American manufacturers,

    The BMW 2002 Production Run

    BMW 02 series are like the original Volkswagen Beetles in one way (besides both being German classic cars)—throughout their long production, they all essentially look alike—at least to the uninitiated:  small, boxy, rear-wheel drive, two-door sedan.  Aficionados know better.   Not only were there three other body styles—none, unfortunately, exported to the US—but there were some significant visual and mechanical changes over their eleven-year production run.   I’ve extracted t
