old as fuck doesn't apply, as long as they aren't broken or abused.


For a racheting torque wrench it does, those springs get weak over time and need to be recalibrated. As for the scale those rarley go out of tune.

My car is a $1500 '85 nissan. Not a 2mil BMW race car. Im goin lower.

Just don't get a click torque wrench, they = bad for engine assembly.
Scale type ones are the way to go, and don't forget to pick up an angle indicator!

This I need, still got a snap on click type, I will probably use it for the first 2 torqueing steps

^ damn hotdoghogie, you beat me to it
They still need to be re-calibrated every so often

Not THAT often... Depends on use and abuse.
If you're a dick and don't turn it back to zero when you done with it, then yeah, it'll probably need to be calibrated.

But that shouldn't matter anyway, because you shouldn't be using a click torque wench when building engines anyway! :P

Why not? And im not trying to be a smart-ass, i really dont understand why not. As long as its calibrated properly i dont see why it would be any less effective than a dial type.

Can you be absolutely sure that it's set to the right torque?
Most I've used are just a dial it "close enough" deal (digital doesn't count), a scale type you SEE the torque you're at while you apply it.

I like seeing what's going on while I do it.

well, i decided to order arp main studs

and i checked the piston ring gap, there within spec. no need to file fit.

+1 on the dial torque wrench, and they are so much cheaper, like 1/4 the price of a good ratcheting type althought they don't look as cool....

Good choice on ARP, I would use them on the rods too, don't reuse you stock rod bolts, they will probably stretch to cause the famous sr20 rod knock and most importantly, you don't want those to fail spinning at 7000 rpm.... will make a big chunk of worthless alluminium... or a hell of an expensive paper weight and you already have the ca20 and ka24 for that use ;)

Not to be a buzz kill, but ARP mains will distort the main journals differently than OEM bolts.
Most people that plan on using studs have the main journals line bored, otherwise you're taking risk of spinning a main bearing.

Rod bolts and head studs are ok to use in replacement though (since OEM rod hardware is already a stud, and the head surfaces should be milled flat).

No binding, but what kind of oil clearance do you have? If it's too tight anywhere on the bearing, you'll risk spinning it.
Just IMO, it's your engine.

^^^What is said...

Plastigauge it just to be sure... better be safe than sorry... you should check every bearing surface while the engine is out of the car... make sure you rebuilt it right the first time... nothing sucks more than skipping a few step to get it on the road faster/cheaper and having to go through it all in a couple of miles.... just my 2 cents
