Torque Specs for MORE body mounts

Hello. I have just swaped out the 85 rubber body mounts for a set of MORE body mounts. Can anyone tell what I should torque the bolts too for this re-install? Thanks

Until surrounding metal turns pink. [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/grin.gif[/img]

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.

Re: Torque Specs for MORE body mounts

JimLou,
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

Tight. Machinery hand book should have the specs of the bolts you'd be using. It is a must have book for a wheeler.
