Rocker Arm Torque Specifications

I have an urgent question!!!

I have a 4 cylender 2.5L stock engine on my CJ7.

I need to know how many lbs of torque is specified for the Rocker Arms to be tightend to.

Thank you!

I show 19ft lbs in the inline 4-150. And 20 ft lbs in the 151. I'm not sure which engine is the 2.5 L. My manual only lists as the 150cid and 151cid. Anyhow you're safe at 19 ft lbs.

I actually have both Chilton and Haynes manuals. One manual is better on certain things, while the other is better at other stuff. I get a lot of use out of both. A factory service manual would be a very good thing to have.

I agree completley... get them both!! I've got the facotry manual too, but it doesn't have anything in it that the Haynes or Chiltons doesn't have.
