      Haynes, thoughtfully, does not list a torque value for the trans. oil pan bolts. As a starting point, I torqued the bolts to 92 inch/lbs. I'm sure that the correct value is more than that.

      Anyone?

      btw, I just ordered the A4LD Ford manual today along with the Transgo VB kit and the Viton reverse servo seals.

      Pan bolts are rated at like 75 inch pounds if you read the manual, but I just torqued mine to 10 ft*lbs and it worked just fine. My Chilton manual suggests 8-10 ft*lbs, so that is what I used. Hope that helps :)

      Cheers!

      Really 8-10 ft*lbs is all you need. If it leaks go to 11 ft*lbs, wont hurt anything. Just dont go too far or you will strip the threads in the tranny, it is aluminum. I dont have an inch pound setting on my torque wrench, im cheap :p

      thanks for the info.

      I guessed at 7.66 ft/lbs., so I was pretty close. Will tighten then up tomorrow evening.

      Thanks!
