So, obviously you can tell that I have been frequently asking myself what some of these are.
I don't have a bently (well I do but...long story)
and I work on my car alot. I'd rather not over torque a bunch of stuff on my car.
If any of you guys know these, I would sure appreciate you letting us all know what they are. I'll come back and edit this post as they come along.
I did a bunch of searching, but trying to find specific stuff like this is a bear if you don't already know where to look.
I'll put a star by the ones I really need.
Thanks!
(and could we stickey this till it gets filled in?)
If anyone has any suggested additions to the list, I'll stick 'em on here.

Oil pan bolts around the perimeter are 11 ft/lb and the onest that go into the tranny case horizontally are 33 ft/lb. Don't ask me how I know these offhand. I would think it would be real hard to torque those 11 ft/lb ones in some spots.

This was really just a roundabout way to avoid asking directly for these torque specs:

*Flywheel to crank bolts:
*Pressure plate to flywheel bolts:
*Connecting rod bolts:
*Cylinder head bolts:

found 'em yet 'werks?
