Jim's 81 GL1100 Water Pump

The engine I bought for this bike was leaking coolant into the oil. I'm replacing the water pump before the engine goes back into the bike. I cannot seem to find the torque values in either the GL1100 or GL1200 Factory Shop Manuals. These are 6MM bolts going into aluminum. Everything else on the engine for a 6MM bolt is 7 Foot Pounds. These bolts have a crush washer under them. Anyone have any ideas?

That is a pretty good chart. It says 6.6 ft pounds and Honda says 7 ft pounds. I found this thread on Goldwing Docs http://www.goldwingdocs.com/forum/viewtopic.php?t=275. Down about 80 pics the author says torque 9 foot pounds. The unknown is the crush washer. My plan is to get the treads clean and dry and make sure everything fits up. THX

No real torque spec. Just tighten normally, I use a 1/4 inch ratchet

The 1200 FSM has a standard torque value chart on page 2-12. In the 1100 FSM torque values are shown on page 3-4. My copy of the 1100 FSM was printed in 1982 and does not show the '83 model.

Not to over think this, but I like the description on the GoldwingDocs website. They say 9 foot pounds.

I use a 4 inch long ratchet and lay my palm over the ratchet, twist to tight, and snug it a bit.

If it was "admin" over at GWD he is wrong and will never admit it.

9 ft/lbs versus 6.6 ft/lbs as recommended by the Metal Experts?
