Torque Spec Needed Soon

Hey Guys,

Anyone have a Chiltons or Haynes handy?? What are the Torque specs for the Oil Pan bolts? And are they in FOOT or INCH pounds.

Thanks

Believe it or not, the I-6s and V8 don't have a torque spec, just the 4s and the V6.

Re: Torque Spec Needed Soon

actually there IS one in the Haynes manual because i tightened it to something i believe was around 10-15 FT pounds. I am wondering if i did it wrong and it was supposed to be INCH pounds cause it looks like it is still leaking. I dont have the manual here

thanks

Re: Torque Spec Needed Soon

the torque setting for the oil pan screws for the 304 and 360 are
1/4 X 20.......7 ft/lbs recheck torque in service is 5-9 ft/lbs
5/16 X 18.......11 ft/lbs recheck in service 9-13 ft lbs
same for the 232 and 258
in the T.S.M everything has a torque this is from the 1980 T.S.M.

Re: Torque Spec Needed Soon

I checked your posts and can't find why you are torquing the pan did you remove it ?
when I swapped out my engine for the rebuilt one I had to chizzel it off the old block ,it sure wasn't leaking from the pan .The rear seal or possibly the timing chain cover .mine had such blowby it was leaking from everywhere but the pan,including the dipstick tube,and the distributor shaft.
so my point is if you are leaking it in all likleyhood is probably not the pan
except if it had been replaced already.
just my opinion anyhow stranger things do happen with jeeps

Re: Torque Spec Needed Soon

i had to remove the pan when i installed the T-18a because i replaced the rear main seal while it was apart.

thanks

Re: Torque Spec Needed Soon

what all did you have to replace when you installed the T-18 my SR-4 is grinding like Hell and I am trying to make it till income tax time and am leaning towards a World Class T-4or T-5 because I don't want to have to do too much driveline mods or T case adapters $$$$$plus all I need is a reliable jeep ...No rocks to climb in Flori-Duh just speed bumps and ditches.
