Hi you guys. Does anyone know what the bolts fastening the converter to the flexplate should be torqued to? They are 7/16, grade 8, on my AMC. I love this forum, I cant believe you pulled it off. Good ideas usually just stay ideas.

I have never torqued them down myself just went a tad past " ummmph " I would guess 50-60 ft. lbs

edit: I also apply some red loctite to the fastners

I never used a torque wrench on those either. Like Duane I do use locktite though.

Sam ... here are the specs for the factory stock fastners. Anything other than stock you need to check with the manufacter. I have some specs for ARP stuff around somewhere but would have to search for it. I think they have a list on their website.

Main Cap Bolts ... 110 ft. lbs
Rod Bolts ............ 50
Head Bolts ........... 80
Balancer Bolt ....... 85
Flexplate Bolts ...... 65
Intake Manifold ..... 30
Exhaust Manifolds .. 20

all single seal rear mains should be tourqued to factory spec. over tourquing can cause seal to leak or uneven tourque. \:D/ \:D/ \:D/ \:D/
