Hi there, was wondering if anyone knows what these need to be torqued to? I had one come loose and a bunch of oil came out. My shawn hyland book says 89 INCH/pounds but just wanted to make sure.

Justin,

Go over to the TToC and down to the Engine Build Threads section. The first entry you will find is a complete listing of all the ARP fasteners available for the engine, their part numbers and their torque or stretch specs where appropriate. The thread has a downloadable pdf doc of the entire ARP fasteners table, attached to it.
Ok right on thank you. Another reason I ask is the bolt in my engine is a hex cap and someone else said they should be 12 head bolts.

I built this engine about 3 years ago and everything has been great. I developed a horrible oil leak, i thought it was the oil pan gasket. After dropping the k-member twice i realized that one of these side bolts had someone backed itself out and was completely loose, thus causing my oil leak lol. I have no idea how that happened. Do people ever RTV those?

According to this i should be torquing them to 25 foot pounds but my Sean Hyland "How To Build A Mod Motor" book says 90 inch pounds.

FOUND it! I must have got them from here. If you look really close at the pic they're hex head. Next time I would definitely go ARP as i love a 12 sided fastener way more. I'm only posting this for future people that may run into this (highly unlikely).

Thank you for the the help Ed and you are spot on. Yeah I'll absolutely go ARP next time around. When i built this engine I was so green and new to it all (first Engine I've ever built). I've learned so much in the past 3 years. This forum and you are incredible and a blessing to the Terminator/Ford community. Thank you again sir.
