Can anyone advise me on the torque procedure for putting the head back on my 601? Is there a special pattern or should I just work out from the center? What torque should I take the bolts to?

Same question for the intake/exhaust manifold.

TIA:thanku:

OK - since there are no takers, I resorted to internet searching and came up with nothing for the workmaster, but I did find some info on the 8-9N series tractors indicating 65-70 ft-lbs for the head bolts and that they should be tightened in the sequence shown in this image. Unless anyone thinks its a bad idea, I am going to proceed with this info and basically just start in the center and work my way out towards the ends like in the image. I'll try to make sure torque it sequentially in 3 or more passes to get to the final torque reading.

:sorry1:

I missed this one.

Here are the torque patterns (and values) for both the gas and diesel heads for the hundred series Fords. (P.S. these are clickable thumbnails... to make 'em bigger)






I'll see what I can find for the manifold for you, too...

My manual states (for gasoline engines):
Be sure all the old gasket material is cleaned off the
mounting surfaces on the manifold and cylinder head.
Always use new manifold gaskets whenever the mani-
fold is removed.

1. Position the manifold gasket, and the manifold,
over the mounting studs.

2. Install the six nuts and lock washers and tighten
the center nuts first. Then alternately tighten the
remaining nuts toward each end to 40-50 ft. lbs.
torque.

3. Place a new gasket between the manifold and
the muffler inlet elbow and install the two bolts.
Tighten the bolts to 40-50 ft. lbs. torque.

4. Connect the fuel line at the carburetor sediment
bowl and the air intake tube at the carburetor.
Open the fuel tank shut-off valve and check for
leaks at the carburetor.
