    Rod Bolt Torque?

    Hi everyone! I know this has probably been asked, but I did a quick search (I don't want to spend alot of time cause I came to work to go online since my home computer is currently messed up) and couldn't find the answer.

    The manual states 15 ftlbs on the first pass, then 75 degrees on the second using some special tool. Can anyone explain this or does anyone know an alternative method? I'd like to get the car put back together today so I can drive it this weekend. Thanks for your help!

    my book says 60* on the second pass. they make a torque wrench that also doubles as an angle gauge. basically, you set it to 0* and watch it go to whatever angle you need. being digital, i know the snap-on version will beep when you reach the desired angle.

    Thanks! I've never heard of that before. The 60 degrees is for the early design and the 75 degrees is for the later design.
