    Upper Intake Torque Specifications for OHV?

    I need to replace my upper intake gaskets that are leaking. I looked in my old Haynes manual and these are the torque specs. They seem kind of low with the upper intake nuts torqued to 12 ft lbs. While the studs to the block are torqued to just 84 inch lbs which is 7 ft lbs. The other torque...

    Crankshaft Mysteries - Belt pulley bolt torque specifications needed.

    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
