    Where to find torque specs

    Guest-only advertisement. Register or Log In now!
    Been doing some more extensive work than I initially anticipated on when first digging in to swap out my pvc valve
    Amyhow Iím just about to start putting things back together and I want to make sure I get a few things in particular (oil filter adapter and intake manifold) torqued properly
    Where would I find the correct settings for such things?
    Thanks in advance

    Assuming 1.8T?

    Oil filter housing


    Intake mani


    Oil filter housings are torque to yield, I usually call it 12 ft lbs and have never had an issue. Hope this helps

    Any chance that you've got an exploded diagram of a pcv valve and connecting pieces. I can't for the life of me figure out how this thing is supposed to fit on this guy

    I see you're also in portland with bikes and a 05 dolphin grey Avant 6MT - that's rad

    * I know which PCV valve port the breather tube goes on but can't for the life of me figure out how it will fit. The old valve had a weird connector between the two that I've never seen in any other pictures or diagrams. A connector which I can't seem to remove from the old valve...
    Am i supposed to use a heat gun?

    Hereís how I do it, picked up the concept from working with modern pex plumbing and how a little friction expands the supply hose to the valve. In the pics I already attached my PCV elbow to the PCV...thatís the easy part.



    Take a little assembly lube and apply to the male end of the PCV outlet, and female end of the ventilation tube.



    Grab a short 3/8Ē extension with a rachet or cordless impact, and apply a little bit of pressure to expand the opening. Just donít go too fast if you use an impact, donít want to heat up the plastic too much. Should start looking like this



    Once you have about 1Ē expanded you should be able to start slipping it on until itís completely seated. Takes a little force, but once cooled the plastic will form around the PCV outlet and seal effectively.



    Nice thing about using a little oil or assembly lube is that it may need to be slightly clocked when installed, and the lubricant will allow for fine adjustments while not affecting the seal as it will go from a liquid to a gas within a few heat cycles. Hope that helps!

    Haha itís been an awesome car. Took awhile to find a USP with a manual, but was worth the wait. Since youíre in PDX and get stuck on something, shoot me a PM.
