Rocker Cover Gasker Replacement

Hi,

I'm about to change the rocker cover gaskets on an RB20DET. On most cars I have done this on I have had a workshop manual that has a picture showing certain spots to put a bit of RTV sealant on when doing this. Does the RB20 have some points where I am meant to do this or should I just put some of the sealant all over the new gaskets?

Also does anybody know the torque settings for the rocker cover bolts?

Cheers,

Adrian

Only on the corners of the half moons and the corners.

I did mine a couple of months ago, I just put sealant on the half moons at the back, as for tightness I did the screws up with a screw driver till they were tight, (you can only go so tight with a screw driver till ur hand slips :down:) then nipped them up again after a couple of hundred K's. So far no leaks :P

x2. I did them once with a torque wrench to see how tight Nissan suggested. Its not tight at all, and you wouldnt over tighten them by hand i dont think.

I have taken mine on and off for colour changes 3 times. No leaks, no new gaskets or sealant :P I just make sure the gasket is nice and clean, and oil it like an oil filter before you tighten it.
