Hi, Can anyone tell me the torque settings for the Ford 100E sidevalve main bearings and big ends? I guess they would be the same as the earlier 8 and 10hp engines?

Also, is there anything other than the head which will need to be torqued up? Oil pump maybe?

Was going to have a guess but i thought i'd ask first.

Cheers

the bearings are different I think in the E93A engines, so don't automatically use the figures for the older engine - just in case. I don't have a 100E manual to hand unfortunately!

Hi

A guide from a workshop practice book of the era;

Con rods 35-40, Main bearings 45-65

If using high tensile bolts;

Con rods 60-65, Main bearings 80-100 all lb/ft.

Top man ukDave! I knew the main bearings were higher than the big ends but not by how much. Thanks.
