Hi,

The torque spec of 4.5-5.9 ft-lbs listed in the repair manual should be followed. You will need an inch-lb torque wrench to accurately torque the bolts for the valve cover - we do not recommend trying to use a ft-lb torque wrench at specs this low. To convert the ft-lb specs to in-lb, simply multiply the spec by 12 - 4.5*12=54 in-lb - 5.9*12=70.8 in-lb.

Fel-Pro gaskets are designed to be installed using the OE torque specs unless otherwise noted by an instruction sheet that would only be included if the specs were different. This is because the information and procedures in the repair manual are copyright-protected, so we are not able to reprint them. We strongly recommend using the latest edition of the repair manual for your application to ensure you have the correct torque specifications, sequence, and other procedures to ensure a reliable repair. Printed manuals can be purchased at your local auto parts stores or online. Electronic access to repair information can be purchased through a website such as AllDataDIY.com

If you do not wish to purchase a manual, you can check with your local library as they may have a copy available.

Hi Tommy,

The torque spec of 89 in-lbs listed in the repair manual for the valve covers should be followed. You will need an inch-lb torque wrench to accurately torque the bolts for the valve cover. The rear differential cover bolts appear to have a spec of 33 ft-lbs, however there are multiple differential options. We recommend confirming the proper spec with the latest edition of the repair manual.
