I can't email but you can download the images once you get to a computer that will run Adobe Reader, all you have to do is login to the Just Answer site and this question is always open to you


The guide and tensioner is 19 ft lbs


the oil pan is 8 ft lbs


the front cover is 22 ft lbs except the lower center bolt which is 89 INCH lbs


Valve cover is 10 ft lbs


Crank bolt is 159 ft lbs


Let me know if you need more here or you can print the images from your other computer

that what I need thanks, XXXXX XXXXX the sprocket bolt specs on the cam shafts seemed like more that the crank bolt when I took them off.

The crank bolt has an integral tapered washer so the breakaway torque is more than the tightening torque. The washer to pulley gets a dab of RTV


Cam sprockets are 75 ft lbs.


Let me know what I can do to help

thanks George, only thing you could help with now is getting the oil and grease off the key board. but I don't think that falls in you area.: )

A little brake clean on a rag (don't spray the board) and rub lightly so you don't take the numbers off.


Don't tell the computer guys I answered that!


Let em know how I can help
