Exclamation Coventry victor... ready to be re assembled!

hey all my CV is ready to be reassembled but there are a few issues i have.
this is my youtube channel if you want to check out my videos of the engine so far.

http://www.youtube.com/user/geoff390

I have a manual but nowhere in it tells me of the torque settings for the connecting rod bolts. Could i use the torque settings off a similar sized crankshaft.

Also the ring end gap. The pistons diameter is 80mm and at the moment the ring end gap for the new rings are 21thousands for the compression and oil rings are and the end gap is parallel.

the old gaps were 34thousands for the oil, around 42 thousand for one compression and the other compression ring gap was too big for the feeler gauge to measure.

thanks Geoff

Hi Geoff, can't help with your torque settings but if it was me then "tight" should be good enough though if we knew the bolt size and thread it would help. Torque settings only really came into the industry in the 1960's, early diesel engine manuals had information like " tight with a 6 inch spanner, or dead tight with a 1 foot bar"! Regarding the ring gap I would think that it's about right, is it aircooled as I am on a tempory computer and can't open your video! If I remember correctly the gap on aircooled's is about 6 thou per inch of bore so 80mm = around 3 3/16 so it isnt far out. My aircooled Wisconsin has a 2 7/8th bore and the gap is around 18thou. Hope this helps.

Pete.

My email is geoffrey390@hotmail.com
A 3/8inch nut will turn on the thread about 1/2 a turn then lock so its very close to 3/8 but must have a different pitch thread.
