Well if you think about it (if that's possible), both mechanisms would have the same effect. To make it easier to crank the engine over. The pressure relief valve makes it easier to crank the engine, the torque limiter makes sure that you aren't using too much torque on the starting system (and therefore putting undue strain on the starter motor). Since I didn't see the relief valve setup during my quick perusal of the service manual I told him about the only thing that I saw that was close to what he was asking about. Sorry I missed the other paragraph about the camshaft decomp. :steve j said:no it's you who needs some schooling boy, why in hell did you bring up the starter back torque limiter? it ain't even close son. use your imagination, he was asking about pressure relief during starting and that would be by the compression produced by the pistons. See, it's easy to get there. Oh my, thats right. you have to have an imagination first!
Don't worry about it. He just saw an opportunity to try to show that I don't know what I'm talking about. If it wasn't on this thread it would have been on somebody elses thread. Just ignore the guy. :bigthumbsup:chucks son said:thanks for the info, sorry I caused a disagreement :dontknow: :dontknow: :dontknow:
Umm, I get everything 20% off at my dealer, but I think the retail price of the manual is about $70. Pretty pricey but worth it IMHO. :doorag:BLADE said:now that I can't hear duelling banjos playing... how much $$ was the service manual?
