Shoulder bolt torque

Hi,

anyone know the proper torque for the tensioner arm shoulder bolt for a 1981 model year? Those plastic bushings make me nervous and I want to get this right.

the plastic bushings will ride on the bolt they should be able to move, check this B4 you install the bolt to the WP

I don't remember using torque specs to tighten down my tensioner arm bolt. That plastic sleeve should ride on the smooth part of bolt (non-threaded), where it shouldn't bind. I do remember it being a bear to get it installed. I remember snipping pieces of the bushing to get it to not bind.

Bedinator--- Saw that you were still looking for torque (no answers) to your post so I went through my WSM this morning and I see why no answers! I dont see the torque listed anywhere. It looks like a 8mm bolt and the common torque listed for them in the WSM is
14 to 18 ftlbs. like the W.P. bolts. I did mine in 2001 and dont remember what I torqued
it to? Will keep looking.

John

I don't give torque values. My bolt advice is limited to "righty tighty, lefty loosie".

okay, thanks. I have it in place and finger tight - no binding. I'll use the bolt-size-torque value. Last parts should be here Friday - spinning wrenches this weekend!
