Glow plug torque spec.

I understand a dab of anti-seize and the proper torque is necessary to do the job right. What's the method and torque. Thanks for the help.

Re: Glow plug torque spec.

The service manual says 14 lb-ft for glow plugs and doesn't mention using anti-sieze. There's a tapered seat at the bottom of the threads that makes the seal, so the threads will be bathed in oil from above. Anti-sieze probably not necessary.

Re: Glow plug torque spec.

I was looking up the torque specs for my new injectors in the service manual and checked the glow plug specs while I had it open. It reads 124 in/lbs or 14 Nm. Might want to double check before you torque it down.

Re: Glow plug torque spec.

FordMastertech,
Checked again says 14Nm. I would be inclined to believe you however. It is a Ford shop update manual but it was printed for the 99 model. Don't know if there were any updates made or if this thing is wrong. Guess you can't believe everything you read. What should the injector hold down clamp mounting bolt be torqued to? This thing says 120 inch/lbs [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/shrug.gif[/img]

Re: Glow plug torque spec.

We should really have a data base on torque specs/nut sizes and International PN's. We could all post there after doing jobs like this. That would be nice. Thanks for the replies. Dale
