No, Travis is right. 10 ft/lbs for the pan bolts. In an alternating stagger pattern.

Kyle, we're having a meet at the end of this month. Bring it over.

I've always done mine to about 14 ft-lbs...i believe that was from the FSM.

Its not really that bad changing it...not even for me, and when I do it, i always set aside about 6 hours to have time to drop, drain, install, fill, drive, drop, drain, filter, install, and fill.

Travis? Hey, just because we're both grandpas.

14 probably wouldn't hurt anything, but I wouldn't go much more than that, or the lip of the pan could be bent, or the re-useable gasket compressed too far. Doing the bolts in the staggered pattern that Bob....er I mean Bill suggested makes it easier to get them torqued evenly. I go around a few times to be sure.

Crap. Sorry, Dick. I scrolled through it pretty quick after someone PM'd me a link and a question.

Cool.

Bob, er Bill, I think Oregon is a bit far just to get help dropping the pan. I'll manage.
