Re: 2rz Pauter Rods
Check the bolt diameter,
This from Pauter
Technical information about your Pauter Rods
ALWAYS oil the threads and underside of bolt head thoroughly before installation!
Never assemble rods without thread lubrication. Incorrect torque figures and/or seized threads will result.
These torque specifications are accurate for engine oil only, moly lubes will not give the same results. After drawing beam and cap together to seat both pieces evenly, torque should be reached in incremental steps of about 10-15 ft/lbs from one bolt to the other.
NEVER torque one side completely while the other is loose.
ARP 2000 bolts
5/16"-24 thread bolts (3/8" socket) = 32 ft/lbs
3/8"-24 thread bolts (7/16"/11mm socket) = 50 ft/lbs
7/16"-20 thread bolts(7/16 or 1/2" socket) = 70 ft/lbs
