Torque Wrench Size for Intake Manifold Gasket Replacement

10

Asked by Jul 21, 2015 at 03:52 PM about the 1997 Chevrolet Lumina 4 Dr LS Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hey anons.  What size of torque wrench do you guys recommend for engine work?  1/2 or 3/4.  I don't really know anything about torque sizes or whether an "extender" would be needed to reach those deep bolts.  Thanks trying to buy equipment to replace my intake manifold gasket.  I know the amount of tightness is important.

A ½" drive torque wrench is good for engine assembly. I personally prefer the 'clicker' And torque sequence is just as important...what order you torque thew bolts. Go around and snug them, then torque according to specs.
