Re: AMC 20 torque specs
I will assume the U-Bolts. I could not find a listing for a torque value. Since no one else has been willing to reply... I'll take a stab at it the way I have done things for years...
Make them tight, very tight (guess 100 ft/lbs), sometimes feel is good enough if you don't have a torque wrench, don't break the darn things. Then take it out and drive it gently, several starts and stops, bring it back and check them to be sure everything is still tight.
Drive it more, maybe a few days around town, bring it back and check them to be sure everything is still tight.
After a few checks you will feel better (nothing fell off), then just drive it.
I haven't bolted up an axle to spring plates in years, but would love to change my springs and the above is likely how I'd do it unless someone here tells me I'm gonna die because of it.
Just my thoughts... I could be wrong.
