When it comes to unlisted torque specs, you have 2 options.

1. German torque=guten tite
2. American torque=fu***** tight.

If you've been wrenching long enough, veteran wrenchers can tell when something is just right. Obviously you're not going to use a 1/2" MATCO 2769 gun on a 1/4" fastener.

I was just wondering what the factory called for because its actual holding a lot of weight on the bracket that'* threaded in to the aluminum oil pan I am thinking 20 foot pounds with the aluminum threads with anti seize so you don't get indifferent
metal corrosion
Yea one of those things we did working on B52 D models J57
aluminum case holding the fuel control anti seize on all the steel bolts going in to aluminum threads

I remember using torque multipliers on helicopter engines in the army. 1500ftlbs with a 5 ft torque wrench. On top of a multiplier.

All ways loved up in the cockpit and getting to run the engines at full power
then hitting water injection on them man they would scream
I bet you got to fly around in the helicopters
