Gotcha. THAT part of the flange.

It only has to hold it on the splined shaft so 18 ft lbs sounds enough. The bolt looks no bigger than bolts which are torqued 15-20ish in general.

This is just another case of "a little information is dangerous". Junior tech heard most green bolts are one use so he made asumption (as you me ) they all are.
Its been quite a while since I did parts, but with the red and green thing. Seems to me had more to do with thread pitch than anything else.

Does anyone know the torque value for the oil pump mounting bolts?

I read through and didn't find it hidden anywhere.
Thanks!

It's lacking a lot of information

t's lacking a lot of information
In my decades of experience, I have found the bentley manuals are more than adequate when it comes to needed info for repairs if you are a well-trained mechanic.

The problems start for someone who needs all steps laid out for them to make the repair, like are given in chiltons & similar, the steps that the bentley manual writers assume the mechanic using their manuals do not need spelled out for a successful repair....

If you are having trouble using the bentley manuals I with all due respect suggest taking a refresher mechanic class at a local college to fill in the gaps one who is using a bentley manual is having using it to make the repairs they want....

With my over ~40 years at this point making repairs to all sorts of engines from tractors, boat engines, car engines, suspensions....ect... I find the bentleys plenty useful when carrying out repairs....

I will add that well-trained mechanics in my experience find the chiltons & similar manual to be too filled with what is useless to us details that we all know by heart. It is too cluttered making looking a particular detail we might need take longer than is required, with many times we find the one detail we might need to look up at the time having been left out because the writers of these manuals assume the detail we need is over the head of the shade tree mechanic who is the in the market to purchase their manual.....

I have to disagree with this.
What I see being bushed out of automotive tech schools ranges from horrible to adequate.

Recently one of the newer guys at a local repair shop could not identify the rear differential on a car in the air. Easily identifiable.

The owner has been trashing a few of the schools for years but until I started helping there I thought he was exaggerating.
He wasn't.

This is well outside this forum so I will not continue it but I also feel -all- the manuals need more info.
Torque spec is one of the items.

I know this is an old thread, but those are called triple square bolts; need a different tool than a torx or a allen wrench.

Thanks for that Yuri; I saw that somewhere called XZN and another place said XYZ. I wasn't certain who was right. Btw, you're referring to the external head configuration and not the triple-square internal hole, correct?
