How to replace Spark plugs with homemade torque wrench: Civic FD (short eng version)

Now I will show you how to replace the spark plugs on Honda Civic FD 2008. I'll show you how to do this by following the instruction manual. It says: remove the ignition coil, remove the spark plug, lubricate the threads on the new spark plug with special grease, and tighten a new spark plug with a torque of 25 N/m. Unscrew the ignition coil. Remove the coil. Take the spark plug wrench on 16mm in diameter with a long head. I can't get a spark plug with my hand or with a spark plug wrench. You can take the ignition coil and put it on candle spark plug and pull up. Take copper grease. It can be used from -30 to 1100 degrees. And slightly lubricate the screw-thread on the spark plug. Insert spark plug into its place. Screw in spark plug into the cylinder head until it stops using only the force of a hand. Now we must tighten it. THE MOST INTERESTING: We need to tighten the spark plug with a force of 25 newton meters using torque wrench. But I do not have a torque wrench. So, I use self-made analog of it. I took the wrench with a handle length of 25 centimeters and attach eyelet to it. What is the meaning?? And what is 25 newton meters??? One newton-meter is equal to the torque resulting from a force of one newton applied perpendicularly to a moment arm which is one meter long. 10 N (newton) ~ 1 kgf (kilogram-force), so 25 N•m = 2.5 kgf•m. We need to take meter arm and apply a force (2.5 kilograms) to the end of it. You can take hook scale. We take these scales, take a lever arm attach the scales to the end of the lever arm. And pull the scales perpendicular to the lever arm. Thereby screwing the spark plug. And when the scale will show 2.5 kilograms. It means this is the force that we wanted. It means further tighten is no longer necessary. BUT! It's all is true to a lever which is ONE meter long! It's pretty inconvenient to use meter long lever arm. I made a lever arm with length of only 20 centimeters. 20 centimeters - it is 1/5 of a meter. If we take lever arm 5 times shorter, accordingly the force needs to be increased to 5 times. For example: lever arm 1m = 2.5kg or 0.5m = 5kg or 0.25m = 10kg, etc. I have 20 cm lever arm, so I'll have to use the force of 12.5 kg. That I'm going to try now. I set the scale to zero point. I put lever straight up to clearly see the number of turns that I would do. And holding the wrench by hand, starts tighten the spark plug. Here already shown 5 kilograms ... but it's still not enough. Return back up the arm, and continue tighten. Here already 7.5 kg, ...not enough, ...continue. And finally I have got 12.5 kg, this force will be enough! I have done ¾ of a turn to tighten the new spark plug to 12.5kg, that is 25 N•m. Next spark plug you can simply take and tighten on the ¾ of a turn. And if you aren't sure, then you can use scales with lever of a certain length on the next spark! Set back the ignition coil. Connect the power connector and tighten the screws. Nut can be tightened slightly, just using one finger. That's all, ...left to finish the rest ... _______________________________________________________________, Еще видео о Хонда Сивик 4Д | More video about Honda Civic 4 Ремонт внутренней ручки двери Civic 4D Interior door handle repair Honda Civic FD https://youtu.be/jb5gHhIc_0M Демонтаж внутренней обивки Civic 4D - Часть1: Область порога передней двери Interior Trim Removal/Installation - Front Door Sill Area https://youtu.be/LrTRm7MgNo8 Коврики в ниши салона Honda Civic 4D 2006- Latex Anti Slip Mat Honda Civic 2006- https://youtu.be/vkrQRsCrc84 Test в движении - проставки Lanos + пружины Civic Si On the go - Lanos spacers + Civic Si springs https://youtu.be/JbQtm_bESaM Civic 4D Проставки под пружины от Дэу Ланос 96179844U Civic FD Spring spacers from Daewoo Lanos https://youtu.be/G6wbMeD5h0w Контроллер включения/выключения ДХО при пуске двигателя Car LED DRL Auto On/Off Switch Controller https://youtu.be/Vnhzn2A6dwI Правильная ЗАМЕНА КОЛОДОК Civic 4D DIY Сorrect Brake Pad Replacement Civic FD https://youtu.be/0ZQHlBnItXg Светодиодный ближний свет (самодельный) LED low beam (handmade) https://youtu.be/JaPLsTVeAqw ЗАМЕНА ВОЗДУШНОГО ФИЛЬТРА - Civic 4D AIR FILTER REPLACEMENT - Civic FD (Acura CSX) https://youtu.be/kQV5POlGEj0 ЗАМЕНА ФИЛЬТРА САЛОНА - Honda Civic 4D CABIN FILTER REPLACEMENT - Civic FD (Acura CSX) https://youtu.be/x_6rtE2aRro LED TEST: 10W Cree XP-L vs 10W Cree XM-L2 https://youtu.be/4j2PLR-6VSc Часть 1: Замена штатной акустики Civic 4d Part 1: How to replace front factory speakers Civic FD https://youtu.be/_9PqcMGoxtg СВЕТОДИОДНЫЕ ФАРЫ СВОИМИ РУКАМИ LED FOG LIGHTS - handmade https://youtu.be/sytB6W_AaME
