Radius rod

Post by Gordo89 »

Does anybody have the torque requirement for the radius rod on the late syncro ( cast control arms)

I have had a look and can find the torque for the 2wd but this has the nut on the radius rod

I have the manual in front of me it shows the 2wd version (from Nov 1 1984) this model has the cast control arms which has the nut on the radius rod(next to the control arm) at 180nm

However the late syncro doesn't have the nut and the Bentley only shows the early control arms for the syncro. my first instinct was do it as per the 2wd cast control arm
