Oil pan bolt torque

I searched this site and couldn't find this. Maybe used the wrong words to search. Anyway, what is the proper torque for oil pan bolts, Chevy 350. I've been told 10-12 in lbs and found 10-12 ft lbs doing web searches.

I also heard just snug them up no need to use a torque wrench.

Thanks,

Bill

I like to grasp the 1/4" drive ratchet real close to the head and tighten with just my wrist. I have good luck with it.

I think its 100 inch pounds on bolts and 200 inch pounds on nuts (with studs)

hopefully you are using the one piece felpro or mr. gasket oil pan gasket that has the steel lugs on each bolt hole so you can't overtighten it.you should see what 10-15 lbs. on a 1/4" drive socket feels like before you start on the pan bolts and as long as you don't get completely carried away you should be fine.anyone would have to be nuts to use anything other that the one piece gasket.mortec.com should have all the torque spec's for you.

Yep FelPro 1880 one piece with the steel lugs. I have an in lb torque wrench. So getting the correct torque won't be a problem.

I looked at the Mortec site and couldn't find the torque values. I didn't look in the right place I guess.

Thanks,

Bill
