Help Tip: If you have a question that has not been answered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new thread of your own. By starting your own thread, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum members.

Below are some additional forum policies in hopes of all iboats members will follow, Thank you.

1. Please do not reply to old topics or hijack existing topics. Old topics of a technical nature are like a library book, Please do not write in them.

2. Old topics should be considered archives and used for reference only. Please do not reply to them.

3. Do not take over someone elseís topic (aka hijack) with your own question, even if it is similar. If you have a question that has not been covered to your satisfaction in the archives, it is always best to start a new topic of your own.

4. If you have a question for the original poster (OP) and the topic is over 30 days old, send the OP a PM, he may not even visit the forums any longer, or may not notice your question in the old topic.

5. By starting your own topic, you will receive the maximum number of views by forum helpers that may not even notice your question when itís posted at the end of someone elseís topic. And those answers will be specific to your particular issue.

6. Please do not post to topics that have been inactive for more than 3 months unless you are the original poster. We have very active forums and any topic that remains inactive for that long should be considered "dead". It is especially confusing when there is an entirely new question posted to an old topic.

7. Posting at the end of any topic is considered to be hijacking the original posters topic which in turn subjects the topic to be closed if it continues to happen thus not making it fair to the original poster in the future had for some reason he/she needed to return for additional information or provide an update of the problem solved which is always welcomed within a reasonable amount of time frame.

8. Please note that you should see a red banner pop up near the bottom of each inactive topic asking you not to reply to old topics. The Red banner will read: Please note this topic has been inactive for 90 days. For the best results, please start a new topic.

Thank you all in advance for doing your part in helping iboats run a smooth ship.

  • 5.7 Vortec Head & Intake Manifold Torque Specs ?

    Installed Vortec heads on a standard 1986 reman 5.7 motor with roller lifters. My manual only goes up to 1996. I torqued the head bolts 3 times and in the sequence the manual said to. 22lbs, 44lbs and then 66lbs. Is this the same torque specs for the vortec head ?

    What is the torque spec and sequence for the vortec intake manifold ?

    Appreciate the help, thank you.
    I have included a couple of pictures as pictures are always nice

      OK Found the specs for the intake manifold bolts. Seemed light so I checked with 3 sources to confirm.
      tighten in an x-pattern in bolts then outer bolts.
      1st: 61 INCH POUNDS, 2nd: 106 INCH POUNDS, 3 rd: 12 FOOT POUNDS. Have to go with the inch torque first as the foot pounds 3/8 wrench can't torque under 10lbs.

      Valve Adjustment. There is a specific sequence you must adhere to. Set the motor for #1cyl at Top Dead center, To adjust a valve back off the adjusting nut until lash is felt at the pushrod. Tighten the nut until all lash is removed. This can be determined by rotating the pushrods with your fngers. When all lash is removed the pushrod will stop rotating. When all play is removed rotate the nut 3/4-1 full turn.

      With the engine in #1 firing position the following valves can be adjusted:
      Exhaust 1,3,4,8
      Intake 1,2,5,7

      Crank engine one full revolution - The following valves can now be adjusted:
      Exhaust 2,5,6,7
      Intake 3,4,6,8.

      Valves Adjusted with above procedure


      Intake Manifold Gaskets Installed ( Felpro ) You need a bead of RTV sealant on the front and rear of the block where the manifold sits


      Intake Manifold Installed


      Oil Primed In Motor With Drill and Tool that primes the oil pump


      Valve Covers and distributor installed with rotor pointing to #1cyl


      Motor Sprayed with ACE Hardware Rust Stop 1000Degree Barbeque Paint

          Don,
          The only manual I have did not include the vortec motor. Will definately get a manual with the 5.7 vortec.
