300tdi degree plate

Evening all,

Searched the forum and didn't find a thread on this. While reading the 300tdi service manual, tool number lrt-12-007 is used to tighten the cylinder head bolts. They don't reference using torque wrenches, rather this degree wheel. Is a torque wrench a suitable subsititute, or is this a required service tool for those engines?

Just reading the 300 manual and this caught my eye. Thanks.

You use one of these. It clips on the end of your torqe wrench, and you can measure off the angle of rotation on the dial.

Ty. Never seen these before, then again I've not spent a lot of time with diesels. More to learn!

The dial is used as a reference of degrees not as a torque just like the stretch-bolt idea of the V8's. If you put a line on top of the bolthead then it works the same as a dial as long as you are smart enough to know when you've cranked the bolt 30,60,90 degrees or whatever it is asking for.

I use a Snap-On Techangle torque wrench model ATECH3FR250 which digitally reads out the torque angle. You set the angle you need and it beeps at you as get close to the right angle then gives a solid tone when you reach it. I bought it a few years ago for doing stretch bolts on Discoverys and BMWs - saves lots of time and is much more accurate - not cheap though. I think I remember paying around $350 for mine but it goes up to 250 Ft-Lbs.

thanks for the responses guys. These make more sense, especially when considering yield bolts, bolt stretch, compression of a diesel unit, etc.

Scott, I'm not working on any Rovers at this time, I was just reading the 300 rebuild manual and came across this. I do hope to have a 300tdi d90 one of these years!

Thanks again
