Torque specs for driveshaft flange (installing Drive shaft loop)

Anyone know what the torque specs are , and tight and a quarter turn, untill you can't turn them anymore, or untill you feel the strain in your wrist and elbow doesnt' seem accurate to me.

DAMN IT!!!

I forgot about the air gun tricks too!!! No seriously, i thought that this would be one of those crucial points that you would want to make sure it was right.

seriously though, the proper torque is 83 ft/lbs for the driveshaft flange to companion flange bolts.

hope this helps.

later,
chris

Be sure you use a 12 point socket too.

not doing it

having the shop around the corner from me do it. Not enough room to move around for me under there. I went and got my inspection sticker today and they said they'd do it no problem. I should have them re-route my temperature sensor wire too while it's on the lift. Ordered my pulley today, but gonna be a while cause JDM is out of bearings.
