Torque spec's by year
Friends, I have another forum that I often participate with for concourse restorations. A project has been created to identify various key factory Torque Specs by each year of Gen1 mustangs. I have taken on the 71-73 group. I have the 72 factory manuals, but not 71, 73. I assume they will all be the same, but I would not want to publish incorrect information. Could I get the help of others to verify in the 71 and 73 manuals the torque specs for the following list. I will work on this over the weekend for the 72. This way I figure we can benefit from it as well.

ENGINE - type -
Ignition timing -
Mains - cap bolts -
Mains - Outer cap bolts -

Rods nuts -
Head bolts -
Rocker arm nuts (if positive stop) -

Great idea.

Thank you Don. I will create a post with the 71 and 72 tables on the forum. OK 73 Owners, we need someone to step up and complete the data or at a minimum verify it against your 73 shop manuals to be the same. I do not want to post any assumed information on the web and have someone accpet it to be correct and have a wheel fall off because of it. I do not think that would win any friends!
