Though smaller, these mounts were tuned to maintain the same degree of isolation from noise and vibration at the steering wheel as their predecessors. Each handle nested in a trim bezel both of which were assembled to the trim panel, rather than the door inner panel to provide accurate alignment and eliminate a visible fastener. However, the inner rail thickness was increased for added durability. Subtle design and manufacturing process changes made it more durable and also provided closer control of temperatures than the prior design. Both air bags deployed simultaneously during a severe frontal impact. So we had to do some redesigning of the bottom end in order to split the crank pins and make the firing order a little more uniform and it seemed to have worked out ok. The box mounting brackets were stiffer than in 1996.
Hinged mounting arms folded forward or back to resist damage. Standard rear brakes had 9. Good for high revs, folks used to pay big bucks for those back in the day. The forward portion of the panel, to which the hinges were bolted, was more than twice as thick as the remainder of the panel. This immersion paint process assured complete coverage and a uniform coating. New head bolts must be used when cylinder head isreplaced or re-installed to obtain proper torque.
A bonded rear window, used on both standard and club cab bodies, contributed to the strength. Stamped, one-piece, high-strength, low-alloy side-guard door beams also reinforced the door latch attachment. In the 1987 Dakota, the 239-cubic-inch V6 pushed out 125 horsepower at 4,000 rpm, and 195 lb-ft of torque at 2,000 rpm, with a 9. A compression ball joint is smaller in diameter than a tension joint of equal strength because the compression side of the joint, which has a larger area than the tension side, is used to support the vehicle's weight and jounce loads. Flexible, accordion-pleated cuffs integrated with the rigid duct and tuning chamber unit seal connections at the body-mounted air cleaner and the engine-mounted resonator as on the 5. Hub installation on the truck at assembly required no adjustment; it used a single high-torque nut. So, what's my final drive ratio? With payloads of 2000 pounds or more, 10 x 2.
The normal position had a detent to permit easy re-establishment of normal mirror position after folding. Hub unit front spindle bearing assemblies were more compact than conventional inner and outer tapered roller bearings, contributing to reduced scrub radius. The passenger air bag worked in conjunction with a knee blocker and the Unibelt active restraint system to provide added collision protection for the front passenger. The reductions in turning circle for all models are summarized in the following chart. The top surface of the resonator was ribbed for stiffness. Stamped, one-piece, high-strength, low-alloy door beams helped protect occupants from side impact collisions.
Tightening sequences usually start from the middle of the cylinder head, then go out as if going in a circle. Finer pitch placed more teeth in mesh at the same time, distributing the loads to reduce noise. We were all asked to help out if we had a glimmer. This reduced fan noise by reducing the amount of work the fan had to do. The front stabilizer bar was mounted to a frame cross member to reduce deflection. Camshaft Sprocket-Bolt 54 40 - Camshaft Thrust Plate-Bolts 12 - 105 Forged Connecting Rod Cap-Nuts 54 +¼ turn 40 +¼ turn - Cracked Connecting Rod Cap-Bolts Crankshaft Main Bearing Cap-Bolts 41 +¼ turn 30 +¼ turn - Crankshaft Main Bearing Cap Cross Bolts 3. This allows for expansion under normal operating conditions.
Your engine does not care, and neither do you, what the throttle bore size is. New were wide-spaced front cargo tie-down bars recessed in the floor and concealed by snap-in rubber covers. Steering arms were relocated on the knuckles to balance toe change during jounce and rebound about the curb load position The effects of these changes was to significantly reduce tire wear by keeping the tires more upright and straighter than before. So when you increase the displacement, you should increase the size of those components. The hood with attached grille opened on counterbalanced hinges that reduced opening effort by 50% compared to the 1996 Dakota.
Each module included an aero-style headlight, an amber combination lamp, and a clear faux lamp, all mounted on a carrier bracket. Sep 19, 2013 on a 2002 2. Redesigned exhaust pipe and tailpipe routing permitted use of full diameter pipes. An integrated booster and master cylinder required minimal pedal travel to actuate the brakes, enhancing driver confidence. Precision feel was aided by reducing internal friction through improved manufacturing processes and new seals. A relatively high multiple allows the tires, springs, shock absorbers and rubber mounts to do the work of responding to external inputs with minimal frame flex.
Bolts or PartsLube or SealerTorque to:. If you do not have a Torque wrench, 11 Ft. The displacement will determine whether a component is a torque or horsepower part. Doors overlapped the sills, which eliminated a visible sill gap and helping to keep road splash off the inner sills. This is a good start, and it is a double roller. The result was a hefty power boost.
The engine can carry up to 10. Standard fuel tank capacity remained 15 gallons. This engine is mounted 'front to back' so all reference points will be like that. The reason is because the valve is in that area twice—once when the valve opens and once when it closes. This was aided by a reduction in the number of pieces that had to be accurately attached to the frame assembly.
