    Hi all -

    I can't seem to find the spec in my manual.

    There wasn't a lot of resistance taking them (4 bolts) off (20-30 ft-lb?).

    This is for a 1994 SOHC 2.3 L MT 2WD Ranger.

    Also, would I be OK using some blue locktite on them?

    Thanks!

    - Bill

    the crankshaft pulley bolt should be betweeb 21-28 ft lbs. of torque
    and the crankshaft pulley and hub assembly bolt should be between 103-133 ft. lbs. of torque.

    Crankshaft mysteries - Thanks! What about the Loctite?

    Hi and thanks again.

    Any thought(s) on using Loctite on the pulley bolts?

    i wouldn't bother with loctite on the bolts. as long as you use a torque wrench you should be fine.
