Hi YaLL, Can I get the gear case cover torque specs that include the two gen bolts for my 56? I really need to order a manual, howbout the lifter blocks too. Thanks

120 inch/lbs if you have an inch/lbs torque wrench.

You won't find a lot of torque values listed in the Service Manual.
But you should still have one...

How about a standard torqe chart?

I would think what you can't find in the manual for a given nut-bolt-screw you would be able to find here.

Army Aircraft Maintenance Manuals has a torque chart for every nut-bolt-screw that is uses, but since I am still at home recovering from the shoulder surgery.......I can't get access to it from home computer.

But this chart should work ok.

There is a table of specific torque values given in the shovelhead manual.

Jerry!

120 in-lbs is 10 ft-lbs, I think.

That's pretty stiff on a 1/4" fastener into an aged aluminum casting, but you can always helicoil.

1/4" bolt would 90 inch pounds Max.

But I feel like I am butting in, so I'll leave it.
