SOURCE: specs

Well I just looked up the specs for you for the 2.7 ltr. I hope this is what you want.
Cam Caps 105 in.lbs.
Cam Sprocket 250 in.lbs.
Crank Dampener 125 ft.lbs.
Cylinder Head Cover 105 in.lbs.
Here is an illustration of the timing chain set up. Be aware these marks are lined up with the three sets of plated links on the chain. You should easily identify them if you have a new chain. You may have to clean an old chain to see them.
Good luck with this and let me know how it goes for you.

SOURCE: What is the torque spec

Hi, the spec is 105 in. lbs. I have pasted the entire procedure below from
Thanks for using FixYa.

To install:

  1. Thoroughly clean the camshafts and related parts.
  2. The hydraulic valve lash adjusters are inside the roller camshaft followers. Make sure they are clean, well lubricated with clean engine oil and properly positioned. Install the camshaft followers in their original positions on the hydraulic adjuster and valve stem.
WARNING Make sure NONE of the pistons are at Top Dead Center (TDC) when installing the camshafts.
  1. Lubricate the camshaft bearing journals and camshaft followers with clean engine oil and install the camshafts. Install the right and left camshaft bearing caps No. 2 through No. 5 and right side No. 6. Tighten the M6 fasteners to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm) in the correct sequence.

  1. Apply MoparĀ® Gasket Maker or equivalent sealer to the No. 1 and left side No. 6 bearing caps. Install the bearing caps and tighten the M8 fasteners to 250 inch lbs. (28 Nm). The end caps must be installed before the seals can be installed.
  2. Install the camshaft end seals.
  3. Reinstall the camshaft sprockets, if removed. Install the timing belt, taking care to make sure all timing marks are properly aligned, using the recommended procedure. Use care. DO NOT allow oil or solvents to contact the timing belt, as they can deteriorate the rubber and cause tooth skipping.
WARNING Verify that all timing marks are correct. If the timing belt or sprockets are incorrectly installed, engine damage will occur. Take time to make sure all timing marks are correctly aligned.
  1. Install the timing belt covers.
  2. Clean all valve cover sealing surfaces. Make certain the rails are flat.
  3. Install a new valve cover gasket. Apply Mopar Silicone Rubber Adhesive Sealant, or equivalent, at the camshaft cap corners and at the top edge of the 1 / 2 round seal.
Inspect the spark plug well seals for cracking and/or swelling, and replace if necessary.
  1. Install the valve cover assembly to the cylinder head and tighten the fasteners in sequence, using the following 3 steps:
    1. First: tighten all valve cover fasteners to 40 inch lbs. (4.5 Nm).
    2. Second: tighten all fasteners to 80 inch lbs. (9 Nm).
    3. Third: tighten all fasteners to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm).

  2. Install the ignition coil pack and connect the spark plug wiring to the correct spark plugs. Tighten the coil pack retaining fasteners to 105 inch lbs. (12 Nm).
  3. Reconnect the engine ground strap.
  4. Check to be sure all vacuum lines and remaining wiring have been reconnected.
  5. An oil and filter change is recommended.
  6. Reconnect the negative battery cable and test run vehicle. Check for leaks and for proper operation.

SOURCE: need to know the torque

You did not state the size of engine 4cyl. or v6. I don't this car was offered with a v8. I would say that the torque for your application would be 55ft. lbs. But to be absolutely certain go to your local library and look in the automotive section. They have books there such as MOTORS, HAYNES, CLYMER,CHILTONS. You will find exactly what you need and more.GOOD LUCK.

What are torque specs on 1965 ford 7 and 1/4 inch rear

I have a '68 Motor's manual (goes back to'58) the only rear end specs I can find are for the pinion nut (140 ft. lbs.)
pinion preload: 17-27 in. lbs. w/integral carrier or 22-32 in.lbs. w/ removable carrier. Tightening the carrier bearings isn't so much a torque setting but more or a tightening procedure. Theses specs are done during the rebuild so I wonder if you're asking about the bearing caps or bolts that hold the diff. to the axle housing? I could not find a spec. for bolt torque. Since the bolts that hold it in (if that is what you asking about) are not a bearing adjustment, you can go with a generic torque based on bolt size. Again, I'm not sure what component, or bolts it is you are asking for torque specs on.

I need the torque specs on a rear axle pinion nut for a 2003 Dodge Ram 2500 4/4 Cummins, Automatic.

The pinion nut does not have a torque spec. as in how tight the nut is. The amount of torque is measured in bearing preload. You will need a "torque to rotate" torque wrench. If you are using new bearings the torque spec. is 15-25 in. lbs. If you are using your old bearings the torque spec. is 10-20 in. lbs to rotate. To measure this you will need to tighten the nut in small increments then use the torque to rotate wrench to turn the pinion without the carrier/ ring gear installed. Repeat until desired torque is reached.

Torque specs for mighty max

Per my Chilton's manual tehe bolts should be (cold engine) 65 to 72 FT. Pnds., the cam shaft bearing bolts should be 8x25 = 15 - 19 Ft pnds and the 8x65 should be 14 - 15 Ft Pnds.

The sequence is as follows for the (10 ) head bolts:

7 - 5 - 2 - 4 - 10

9 - 3 - 1 - 6 - 8

I hope this may help,

What is the torque specs for the front wheel bearing/hub assembly nut on a 2002 ford mustang?

Wheel bearing don't have torque specs (to the best of my knowedge). They have a procedure - in this case it is....
1. With everything clean and packed with grease, snug the bearing lock nut until it stops.
2. Reverse it about 1/8th to 1/4 turn and insert the cotter pin.
