main bearing torque was created by Thomas Wilcock
This was discussed on the Forum about 12 years ago and was stated that the engine main bearings should be torqued to 90 ft. lbs. I am going to use new grade 8 bolts (150,000 lbs tensile strength) and the recommended torque for a 7/16" fine thread bolt is 58 ft.lbs. I tried torqueing one of the original Cord bolts to 90 ft.lbs. and could not get there. The bolt simply stretched. I think that 90 ft.lbs. would be much too high for the threads in the block. I have align bored my mains with 58 ft. lbs. Should I leave it at that?
