I recently replaced all the gaskets and belts on my 85, My problem is getting the crank bolt torqued to spec??? I,ve checked a coule of shops and they want $100 plus. Seems pretty high to me. Any suggestions would be great. I've got approx 80# now.
thanks

I also put it in gear, then lay on it for a while with my 1/2" impact. I had to cut a socket down to get the impact in place (or you could remove the A/C condenser instead). I also used some red loctite thread sealer I think it is rated for about 200 ft/lbs. Held up great last time, hopefully this time too.

159 ft/lbs is what its supposed to be torqued to.

$100.00+ to torque the crank bolt!?!?! I'd stay clear away from that place! The auto trans. can make the task more difficult, but still!!!
