hey can someone look in their bentley manual and tell me the torque specs for the crankshaft bearings on my 93. My bentley is in the mail some where on the way from techtonics and this silly chiltons manual tells me everything but that.
I need this info asap, in dire need of rebuild
thanx in advance,
bo

As my brother in law says, just tighten it up until it starts to get loose again and then back off a quarter turn.

Wow. Remind me to never let your brother in law work on my car.

Actually, he owns a machining company and has recently broken into the 10.90s in the 1/4 mile with his 1970 Opel GT. Something about the smallblock Chevy 383 he wedged in it.
He can work on my car any time.

Trying to get him to make me a rear sway bar out of an exotic metal, but I'm not sure that's going to happen as his business has him swamped lately.

More like I've got a pro who will let me hire him when he's not building manufacturing robots. But at least I can approach him with something and he'll get back to me with a solid price, or even tell me how it can be done cheaper.
