    Are you looking for torque on the Head Bolts (65 Ft. Lbs.) that go through the Rocker Arm Stands, or the 4 small 5/16" stud/bolts in those stands for the Valve Covers?

    All of the Torque Specs. are listed in Group I, under General Specifications in the Shop Manual.

    You DO use a Shop Manual for working on your Studebaker right? [}] [B)]

        They get 13-17 Lbs. I just snug them down with and end wrench.

        I have the Parts Catalogs and Shop Manuals on CD Rom Disc. what year do you need? You can email me from here if you click on my "handle".
