Re: Transmission mount 1967 coupe 2000

Follow up. 1. I put the new transmission mount in the vise with about 4 mm proud of the top of the vice. See photo. This is a large 6" vise. I compressed the transmission mount until it fit inside the transmission cross member. This took a lot of force. I put the transmission cross member over the c...

Torque tightening specifications 1967 coupe 206

I have not found a good reference for torque tightening specifications. If one exists, I would appreciate a link, otherwise, what are the torque specifications for: Cam cap nuts, M6x1.0. Grade is either no longer legible, or not stamped on nuts. Cam end bolts [the ones with the 24mm hex head] Cam co...

Transmission mount 1967 coupe 2000

I pulled the transmission cross-brace off the car yesterday to replace the transmission mount and discovered a home made solution of rubber blocks and aluminum spacers and the transmission cross-brace is upside down. The new transmission mount I got from Superformance is slightly larger than the wid...

Re: How do I know if engine mounts need replacing?

While replacing mounts I noticed a small crack in the metal part of engine mount on passenger side, so I removed them for inspection. I found several cracks [see photos] in both mounts...

I have the manual with timing specifications on page 21. I want to first get the valve clearances set correctly before I have to change clearances to 0.5 mm [as you said, I just need to do it for one cylinder on each bank] to degree in the cams. I have a spare 2000 engine, so I have a few valve shim...

Re: Problem with cam timing chain 1967 2000 Dino coupe

I got the measurements on the valve shims and need to do some calculating and then order some correct thickness shims. The cams are all back together. I was able to do the passenger side without disturbing the alignment and without removing any pins. The driver side is back together too, but the tim...

Re: Problem with cam timing chain 1967 2000 Dino coupe

I should have mentioned this is a series 1, 2000 coupe. The chain tensioner screws in and out. I don't believe there is a spring in this style. Ben,
