Those 2500/2800 and Bavaria,s fitted with TR's should of had a voucher that came with it for a head replacement ! MB learned a similar issue with it's CA emissions diesel fiasco. My 85 300TD had a new engine at 8900 miles courtesy of MBUSA....still going strong at 301 k later l
What is meant by angle torque?
I thought at first it was using a beam type torque wrench
(I don't really trust click type torque wrenches).
But, then, what does the degrees angle mean?
I assumed (yes, we all know what that means) a 3 stage torque was to torque the bolts to approx. 1/3 the final setting, then torque them all to 2/3rds the final, and finally finish them up.
So, what does this really mean?
