Yep 69 ft lbs.

Anyone else noticed the 08 manual actually says 68 ft lbs. Not that i figure it matters.

^^ I'm lost now. Does you wrench not measure in ft lbs?

I just set my wrench on 68 ft lbs and get after it.

mkg is meter/kg

set it to 9.71 that = 68

actually 9.7142857142857142857142857142857 Mkg = 68 ft/lbs exactly.

to covert, Ft/lbs to Mkg = Ft/lbs / 7

That was actually ft lbs the guys at Orielley's said to go up to 70 then let the line in the middle match up to 14.... he didn't sound like he knew alot of what was going on really.....I think there was a guy in the background helpin him out though.

if it's too tight, the fins will rub the casing right behind it. if not mistaken, there's a thin oil tube that runs right behind it. you can grind right into it..


based on the question posed in this thread, I've made this chart.

It can be accessed like all the rest of our literature, articles and such via the Reference Library module on the main page, or the quick links menu above.



thanks, MeanGreen198 for the inspiration :)

Im still lost on your torque wrench. 14??????? I don't know of any torque wrench that can do less then 20 lbs unless its the old needle one or a inch pound one.

Hey Steve,I like the chart. I usually use a on line converter but now we got most of it with the click of a button.

Yes i did rent it from them and i'm sorry but i've already returned it so no pic. I left it on the setting i used and showed one of the guys there that checked it back in for me. He said that it looked right to him too so i don't know if anyone of them knows how to use it.....:thinking:

It wasn't that the wrench would go down to 14 but that the dial you rotated with the handle went from 0-14.
