Haynes torque

The Haynes manual says from 25 to 32 Ft-lbs. I recently did 32 on mine.

I don't think you need the lock tite stuff, I heard some people use the ant-seize thats used on the spark plugs. I figure, yeah :x its hard enough taking those bolts off after some years.

Hey I just found this in the Chiltons manual. It says same torque 25-32. But also the retaining nuts to 29-36 Ft-lbs. I see :idea: now they should be tighter. But I'm sure I'll be ok. I remember torquing the nuts first to 32 Ft-lbs. Next time I'll make sure the nuts are on a little tighter than the bolts :x-mas:

Really? That some cool info fellas :) I haven't started the motor yet. But once I do. I'll run it for 30 min. Let it cool. Retorque.

Than again in 7 days, then 30 and every 6 months :idea: :wink:

i made them nice and snug, ran it.
snugged them up again, went a couple days(keeping wrenchs and sockets with me)
snugged them up in front of my girlfriends work, went a couple more days.
made sure they were still snug(didn't vibrate loss)
they don't have to be very tight, just snug.
