Honda Helix Owners, I Need Help

I'm a new Helix owner. I had to replace the water pump gasket but I can't find the torque specs for the three bolts holding the water pump cover. I can't find it in the online shop manual. Does anybody know it? I did try a search with no success, (my Google-Fu is admittedly weak).

I tried to join the Honda Helix Discussion Board http://www.slonaker.net/helixforum/i...eacb6f15951c10 to get help.

When I try to register, the site doesn't says my email address is not allowed It's just a plain ol' gmail account so I don't know what the problem is. The Catch-22 is that I can't ask the site administrator to solve the registration problem until I'm registered. Does anyone who uses that site have the email address for the administrator?

TIA!

Ok-gotcha.

It does note at the end that for any bolts not specifically mentioned to use the specs provided for that size bolt.

Alternatively how does the size of those bolts compare to the crankcase bolts (from the pictures I've seen they appear to be similar). Those are listed as 8-12nm/6-9 ft-lb. Hope you find your answer.

If you go with the low torque settings suggested by dabears you'll be OK. You are running steel bolts into aluminum castings and you can strip them easily. I usually use a nut driver (really a screwdriver looking handle that holds a 1/4 drive socket) to tighten these types of bolts. It doesn't take much.

Only impeller torque in 2004-2007 manual. Probably nearly the same as the one linked. So go with generic torque for that size bolt.

So I got a couple torque recommendations--thanks. it actually took more torque than recommended to get the water pump gasket to stop leaking.
