Torque values
« on: March 29, 2014, 02:31:08 PM »
Is there a place where the torque values are listed for the L engine?  I tried searching the forum but didn't fine anything.

Specifically is there a number for the crankshaft pulley nut?

Thanks

In the Willys service manual you will find the torque specifications for engine and chassis on page 275 - table U55.

I think the crankshafft pulley nut is like 180 - 200 lbs./ft.? Not sure however.
