Has anybody put together a Torque Spec Sheet yet?

I think it would sure be handy to have that. If no one has started one I am starting one right now.

Any suggestions for changes through experience Etc. is greatly appreciated. Some torque specs I can not find in the manual but I am sure someone here knows them. So please add as many as you can.

Thanks!!!!!

Here is what I have so far from the FFR manual and added inserts from FFR.

Do you know the torque spec on the upper ball joint? I could not find that in my old Mark I manual.

Yes that upper ball joint is a very tight fit. My socket barely fits. Thanks for the info I will torque that bolt down tonight.

I noticed in another post that people were marking the bolts and nuts after they have been torqued down with nail polish, sharpie markers, or paint markers. A line on the nut and on the frame of the car will let you know if your bolt or nut is slipping. It is also a good indication that you have torqued the bolt or nut down so you do not miss any.
