Re: Torque Specs for MORE body mounts
Thanks for the help. My 85 FSM did not have the specs either. The back two bolts on the frame where 7/16 grade five, what do you think the tourque specswould be for those? Duane

The '78 FSM doesn't have specs for body mount bolts, so you should use the standard torque values for the molts involved. I think they're all 3/8-16, which for a grade 5 is 31 ft-lbs. If they're grade 1 or 2 it's 18 ft-lbs. If they're not grade 5 they're probably grade 8 which calls for 44 ft-lbs.
Grade 8 has 6 hash marks on the head. Grade 5 has 3, and lower grades have none.
