    Camshaft install bolt pattern

    I have a 2000 Deville, and was wondering if anyone knows the bolt tightening pattern and bolt torqe information for the engine. Thanks

    There are so many torque settings and bolt patterns in a Northstar that you need either a Helm/GM Factory Service Manual or subscribe your car to www.alldatadiy.com.

    For the cams, the bearing halves are torqued exactly like connecting rods: each pair of cap bolts is torqued individually. The sprockets are different still.

    Re: Camshaft install bolt pattern

    Sorry, I guess I wasn't clear with my question. I am not looking for specs for the entire engine. All I would like is information on reinstalling the cams. I would like to know the pattern, and how many ft. pounds each bolt should be torqued to. I would also like to know how many stages each should be tightened down in. I was hoping that someone might have a scan of that section of a shop manual, or know somewhere online that I could view a PDF with this info, without having to subscribe. Thanks again

    Go here

    Then go to the auto repair reference section then find your car. Go to the specifications link and you will find a drawing and the torque specs.
