I need torque specs on a 1997 ford ranger 2.3leter. and bolting pattern


I'm assuming you mean for the cylinder head. This tightening sequence starts in the centre, top to to bottom, and then from one side (1 bolt) than to the other side of centre another bolt. Basically you will work in an X patterm one bolt at a time after the 2 centre bolts are tightened. Keep in mind that new head bolts MUST be used. These are called "torque to yield" bolts and permantly stretch during initial install. So, 1. 51 ft lbs and 2. 90-100 degrees. I've done this a long time and basically if you do not have a degree adapter for your torque wrench, it works out to be about 70 ft lbs. Let me know if you need anything else.

Need torque specs for oil pan bolts


torque specs for these bolts can be found in a Haynes or Chilton manual availiable from your local parts store, or maybe at your local library, however these bolts are usually no more than 14 ft pounds, unlike cylinder head bolts, the bolts do not need to have any stretch factor to hold the oil pan gasket in place or sealed.
