  • Bolt Torque Specs Section?

    I thought there would be a section on bolt torque specs so I can properly torque my 185. I went to 60 and was afraid to go further.

    What does the manual say?

      Probably not much help, and we all know someone will type in the perfect answer, but.....

      My manual says for the 170 the torque is 46-50 and for the 245 it is 80-85. Guess there wasn't a 185 back then.......

        Thanks BOB--I guess I better leave it alone at 60.

          My manuals were for the '59-'64. I had specs for the 170 as well. The torque specs are in the 'maintenance' section in the front.

            If you have a '56 shop manual, all the torque specs are in the very back of the book.

              According to my Motor's Manual for a 1955 186ci engine cylinder head the torque is 46-50 ft/lbs. Neal
