Two finger tight .:applause:

Don't know the exact torque . Just remember that it is the O-ring that creates the seal . Those bolts will strip easily .

7.2ftlbs

any hardware store should carry allen bolt sockets that can fit on your torque wrench

Remember to degrease the torque 10%(?) because the threads are lubricated. I think this is the reason that so many people strip it.

I replace the three bolts every couple of months, bc after so much use they start to strech and will eventually break

well i teightend them up without using a torque wrench befor i posted on here and i took it for a ride and it was leaking not dripping but like if you looked at the edges of the cover they would be black then if you wiped it with your finger you could tell it was oil should i worrie about it or juz keep a eye on my oil level and juz let it go.

id make sure the oil seal isnt cracked or tore. make sure all the o-rings are still there. ive had this happen ive forgot to put the o-ring for the cover on and had it leak on me. you should just half to snug them down didnt know there was a torque spec on them.

I highly doubt that 7.2 ft lbs will be enough to stretch a bolt a significant ammount over a period of 2 months.

My 01 had stock bolts in it the day I sold it...

I'm pretty sure there's a torque on every bolt :applause:
