what is the proper torque setting for the spark plugs on a 96 cruiser
I'm doing the spark plugs for my first time right now, so any other hints or info you can give me would be very welcomed, thanks in advance
My understanding on Spark plugs is to turn them in until the touch down and then another 1/16th turn to slightly crush the ring. Not aware of a torque spec.
thanks for the info, let me know if ya do find a setting of some sort, just wanna make sure these babies are not too tight, should I be using some anti seeze on these!
Tight but not too tight .
14 ft/lb. according to FSM.
It is indeed 14 lbft.
Torqueing spark plugs is very important when dealing with aluminum heads. Anti-seize is also a good idea.
So you mean putting them in with the rattle gun is a bad idea? Seeing as how my plugs last longer than my engines what the heck. :whoops:
