3.7 Tightening Torques

DG and P screws (Plastoform) are used in polymer and lightmetal components. These screws form a
permanent thread when they are installed for the first time. They can be removed and installed as often
as necessary without detrimentally affecting the strength of the screwed assembly, providing the specified
tightening torque is observed. For this reason it is essential to use a torque wrench.

Use the following procedure to fit a DG or P screw in an existing thread:

– Place the DG or P screw in the hole and rotate it counterclockwise until it drops down slightly.
– Tighten the screw clockwise to the specified torque.
This procedure ensures that the screw engages properly in the existing thread and does not form a new thread,
which would weaken the assembly.

7.1.1 Ignition Timing 7.1.2 Removing and Installing

Ignition timing is not adjustable.

Since there is no mechanical wear

in these systems, ignition timing
cannot get out of adjustment. How-
ever, an internal fault in the circuit
can alter the switching point in
such a way that a spark test will
still show the system to be in order
although timing is outside the
permissible tolerance. This will
impair engine starting and running
behavior. - Remove the shroud - see 6.1. • Take out the screws.
