Car: 2001 honda accord v6 (f30a1) ex
over torqued the valve adjusting screws on the rocker arm while doing the Valve Clearance Adjustments. The thread are not striped but bent out of alignment. Need to replace them. The only way I can think of is to remove the whole Rocker Arm Assembly (RAA), cut the screw since it will not come out by unscrewing, and install the new screw. (And the nut). And re-install the RAA.
My Hanes manual said the RAA bolt torques are 17ft-lbs. But on the net I see 15 for 12mm and 9 for 10mm. I don't know, not sure what the torques are for the RAA bolts.
And furthermore, any help with removing the adjusting screw without removing the RAA would be greatly thankful. Removing and installing the new screw. (I really think I can't install a new screw without removing the RAA.)
have the same problem?
