I've been trying to figure out the torque specs for the body bolts. I just bought a daystar kit, and can;t find anything in the manual on what to torque them to.
50 ft-lbs for the larger mounts
35 ft-lbs for the smaller ones

If you're still confused click here to see how I view the forum.
Here are some pictures for those that don't have bolt sequence diagrams for the head & manifold installations. Some notes to go along with the pictures:
There's one head bolt on each engine that goes into the water cavity, these are the ones identified as needing Locktight to seal them properly.
The dowels refered to in the the 2.5 head installation can be a couple of spare head bolts used for head alignment, or you can make the dowels by using a couple of bolts the same size with the heads cut off and a slot cut into the tops for removal with a screwdriver. You put these dowels into holes #8 and 10, slide the head over the dowels, and then you can carry on with the rest of the instructions.
Run a tap through all bolt holes to clean them out and run a die over the bolt threads, otherwise bolt tightness (torque) won't be correct.
I'm bored, VERY bored. So I thought I'd crack open a repair manual and list all the torque specs in a thread so that they will be searchable for future use.
Not sure if this has been done before, if so - then I guess we have some redundancy.
So here we go. Below are all of the torque specs of all the bolts listed in my Haynes Manual for the 1987 - 2003 Jeep Wrangler.
Or course I'll leave out all the non-YJ specific ones.
I'll get what I can tonight, and then work on it more tomorrow night. And then I'll clean it up and catagorize it better after that. Right now I'm just wanting to get the information typed while I'm running a very long and boring job here tonight and have free time.
Tune-up Specific Items Automatic Transmission:
Filter Screws 30RH and 32RH - 35 in-lbs
Filter Screws 42RLE - 45 in-lbs
Pan Bolts - 14 ft-lbs

35 ft lbs when installing and 25-40 to check them.
Call me Matt. I have a YJ.
