Cooling system Torque

:evil: I was going to change the cooling mean time I was waiting for the tire so I start to remove the Drain plug and you guess it, It snapped on me :twisted:. So I had to take the cover pump out to remove the broken bolt. 4 of them I can't find in my service manual the torque for this 4 bolts and drain plug. Do any of you know the TORQUE for this bolts I'm so pissed-off! :twisted:

I just checked my 94 FSM and I found no torque values for those in the chart or in the pump installation section. Strange.

Anytime specific torque values aren't given, you use the standard torque values found in the front of the service manual:

GL1500 Standard torque values

Stop today at the car dealer to get some Honda coolant for my bike, I ask then who make it for them they say Mobil makes the Coolant for them I'm confused, I didn't think Mobil made Coolant.

Yup:



It's far more common in countries outside the US however. I know they make Toyota coolant as well.
