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.

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

Carburetor Mounting Nuts/Bolts - 14 ft-lbs
Throttle Body Mounting Nuts/Bolts - 14 ft-lbs

Transfer Case:
Drain/Fill Plug NP231 15-25 ft-lbs
Drain/Fill Plug NP241 14-25 ft-lbs

Manual Transmission:
Drain/Fill Plug AX-4/5 - 32.5 ft-lbs
Drain Fill Plug AX-1500 - 25 ft-lbs
Drain/Fill Plug NV3550 - 14-20 ft-lbs

Spark Plugs:
2.5L Engine - 27 ft-lbs
4.2L Engine - 27 ft-lbs
4.0L Engine - 27 ft-lbs

Oil Pan Drain Plug - 25 ft-lbs

Oxygen Sensor - 22 ft-lbs

Wheel Lug Nuts - 80-110 ft-lbs

Rear Diff Cover Bolts - 30 ft-lbs
Front Diff Cover Bolts - 30 ft-lbs

I just stumbled upon this and I just had to tell you that YOU RULE! Thanks a million for taking the time to do this!

Maybe this should be determined and added to this thread....?

Alright, I got one. How about the bolts for the transfer case skid plate-to-frame? Can't seem to find it in the Haynes and can't find it on here.
