No problem, bro...

...and i went wondering, HOW on EARTH did this post end up in the Off-Topic Forum? I wanted to put this in the 850 Forum, actually, cos most of the torque specs are for the 850s.
:haha:

Hmmph... Must be the new 'intern' in the department, who just got in yesterday, for a 30-day stint. Fresh from the "chilling-oven" in the UK, duuuuuuuudddee... (And already HR gave her a circular about proper dresscodes to the office... HAR HAR HAR...)

Hmmm. I know i had that in the first post, but at the same time, i was also informed that there are arguments over the issue of whether some parts are OK to get lubricates or not.

For instance, some would contend and swear that lubricating the spark plugs would make it easier to remove them later, but Volvo said, do not lubricate. (IMG:style_emoticons/default/blush.gif)
Does that mean Volvo prefers it to get seized? And in the process of removal, run the risk of having the thread stripped? Hmmmm, dunno.

This is one reason why i didnt pay much attention to that aspect.

Another common argument, is putting the anti-seize on lugnuts. Some would swear on how DANGEROUS it could be, when the lugnuts un-screw itself, given hard driving conditions, etc. You can imagine the rest of the argument. But at the same time, some websites say its a good idea to put some anti-seize to make sure the lugnuts would be easier to remove.

I dont know.
I just you have to just pick a side, and stand by your argument. Have your own reasons to do it too.

Me? Yes, i lubricated by spark plugs.
But i dont on my lugnuts. Made a mistake once, and then washed and rubbed them off.
But that's just me.

THe choice is yours, sparky.

General requirements

-Clean all contact surfaces in the joint, mechanically first and then use a solvent to get rid of grease.
-If necessary, replace screw and nuts for torque-tightened joints. When reusing clean and oil.
-Always replace screws or screws and nuts with new ones for joints that are protractor tightened.
Note! Does not apply to M22 self-locking drive shaft nuts.

-The tightening values given as a guide below must be followed to an accuracy of better than 5%.
-1 Nm = 0.1 kpm


And some torque-angle installation:

Designation - Nm - Degrees


Torque rod-engine torque control arm (nut)
(M8) - 18 - 120
(M10) - 35 - 90

could anyone recommend the torque for:
* the throttle body bolts
* dip stick to intake manifold bracket
* intake manifold mounting bracket (bracket to intake and also bracket to engine)

specifically, i am interested in 93 850 nonturbo.

For all the three that you asked, i dont remember if i have come across any specific torque recommendations. But i DO know that i just fasten then good and tight. But NOT to overtighten.

Mike, you referring to the black metal piping?
Again, i dont remember using any specific torque settings for that. Just make sure not to overtighten. Especially easy to over do it, if you use 2 spanners to scissor-lock or unlock the nut.

Careful

WITH RESPECT TO LUBING SPARKPLUG THREADS.....The r e a s o n no anti-sieze or oil is used is that plugs are finely tuned to a temperature range and OILING the threads CHANGES THE RATE OF HEAT TRANSFER to the head! so you just changed your plug to a colder plug, MORE prone to fouling, a shorter life, poorer performance but maybe prone to cause pre-ignition, as the oil seeps out and gets charred leaving a ring of litle glow plugs or carbon deposits. But not to wory, the knock sensors will retard the ignition sufficiently and you'll never know. But power and mileage may suffer to some small extent, though costly over the length of that improper maint proceedure.
If your doing your maintenance regularly,,,,,when will the plugs have the chance to TOTALY sieze? Yeah, maybe a little tighter, but..just do your maintenance right? Hey- I'm guilty too.
