Torque Chart

The correct tension of tightness on any threaded part becomes more important each year, for the simple reason stresses become more acute as engine compression, power output an car speed are increased. A bolt, nut or stud that may be too tight can be equally or even more detrimental then one that is too loose. Form a habit of using a TORQUE WRENCH and use the following specifications and those on the other side as a guide.
