Default What is the transmission pan bolt torque

2002 Bonneville SSEI - Installing long block and want to service transmission before I put the engine back in. Would like to know the torque to the pan bolts. Where do you pick up a shift kit? 163k miles. Threw a long code and resolved by using a quart of lucas. Hope the trans last at least another year.

What does the shift kit do? And thanks for the torque value. Putting in engine as we speak.

Answer that in a PM. The torque is actually 120 inch pounds, not that 5 inch pounds will make any difference.

I doubt it makes much of a difference either. But much more an there might be an issue. I've seen quite a few guys snap tran pan bolts because of not using the proper torque. Good'n'tight is a bad idea on them. The upside is that they are a weak metal and usually snap before the trans case strips out.
