  • Torque specs for Mercuiser 470

    Yeah I know "needs a service manual", but it isn't my boat, and the owner doesn't want to drop the green, so here is where I am at:I am putting new piston rings and bearings in a Mercuiser 470 Serial 5293750 (1979). What I am hoping to get is:Connecting rod bolt torqueHead bolt torqueRing gap (standard ring size)Intake bolt torqueOil Pan bolt torqueRocker cover bolt torqueMain Bearing bolt torque (I took caps off to check main bearings, they were fine)Exhaust elbow bolt torqueAny help is appreciated (Thank God I have manuals for my stuff)...

    Dont do this engine without a Factory Manual!! You do the heads you need the tools. Too many things to screw up on this engine.

        Trent, I am not doing anything to the head. Realistically the whole thing should get a proper rebuild, but the owner doesn't want to put too much green into it, its not my call. I am just replacing the offending parts (#2 cylinder w/broken rings and #3 and #4 bad rod bearings). Everything else is fine.Thanx for the info Jolly, do you not have the ring gap spec?
