Here's all the info you should need:


It has to be done in 3 steps of increasing ft./lbs. and also in a specific sequence. You should also chase the threads in the bolt holes to make sure they're clean and use some Moly lube.

Also, there's a bolt on the front that will go into the blades of the water pump if you're not careful. You may need to grind a little off to make sure it clears. That bolt is also wet so you'll need some sealer on it.

You may know all this but I thought I'd throw it out there just in case!
