    There not torqued as such.

    Done to something like 65nm or so then so many degrees and then so many degrees again. You want new bolts really

    I will have the info somewere but there are at least 2 engines in mla 628. Is it a series 1, series 2 or 3?

    Oh and I will bet money heat gasket blew cause it overheated. So you might want to look in to that too.

    Its an 04 MLA628 LSU with the perkins 1100 series in it. It overheated because of a split hose and when i stripped it down the thermostat didn't look to good so I've put one of them on there order as well. if you have the torque settings and valve clearances that would be great.

    Afraid that is the price its actually 1735.11 retail so your already getting a good discount off it. I though i might have had a better price for you but i cant so i'm OUT.

    Dont waste your time trying to repair it there a pain in the arse! everyone that has asked for one tries but very rare they succeed.
