Good Morning,
I am new to this site and am glad to have found it! I will be replacing the Rod Bearings on my Mazda Tribute (with the 2.3L/140CI 4cyl.) this afternoon. I have searched the Haynes shop manual for the correct Rod Bolt torque specs, to no avail.
The engine spun its #4 rod bearing a week ago. I ordered a new bearing set from Summit Racing and received the package yesterday. (All smiles here.)
I have two questions: 1.) What is the torque value for the rod bolts?
2.) What is the correct way to "time " the Balance Shaft assembly?

Any help that you can provide will be much appreciated!

Mount Airy, MD
