Anyone know what the torque specs are for the crankshaft mains and connecting rod caps? Chilton'* dosen't list it with the rest of them.

If you are at this point you want to make sure you have the Factory Service Manual. There are certain beginning, intermediate and ending torque specs that require brand new bolts each time you rebuild the engine. They are called torque to yield. In laymans terms..substandard bolts that stretch by design and only work once.

You'll need a torque angle meter and all sorts of goodies. It'* ugly.. I was there recently.
