Default Rotax Torque values

My blood boils every time I even think about having to find a torque value. Not in the IPC anymore now that I’ve become accustomed to looking there. I’ve wasted another hour now following old links and browsing through the MM. I noted the irony in Rotax’s note about how IMPORTANT it is to follow the specified torques exactly!
Would someone please just tell where to find them?
Even better for now, what is the torque for the 912ULS Valve Covers?
(Going for more meds now)
Thanks,
Dave

The roque values in the IPM were really handy. I wonder why ROTAX took them out.

Default Torque Values

When I went to Rotax school last year, they said Rotax decided the torque values made more sense in the Heavy Maintenance manual and decided to only have them listed in one place.

Default Heavy maintenance manual link

This links to the page where you can download it ... https://www.rotax-owner.com/en/suppo...stroke-engines

I’ve been putting all the PDF files in a shared drive and then configuring the application to “make available offline” on your mobile device of choice which makes it quick to access and search in the PDF itself.

Paper prints put in labeled binders are also excellent too.

Hope that helps keep the blood from boiling.

Best, T
