SOURCE: brake caliper torque specs

I'd put a drop of Loctite 242 (med. strenght blue) on the threads of each bolt and torque them to 25 foot pounds.

Testimonial: "the loctite is something I use always anyways, I was just wondering what to torque em to...thanks!!"

SOURCE: Compensator nut

150-165 foot pounds with two LINES of Loctite 271 red in the threads of the nut. Yeah, it's tight and you will need a primary locking bar to lock the primary so that the engine will not turn over while applying torque to the nut. A primary locking bar is a piece of rectangular metal stock cut the precise length to fit into the primary chain teeth on engine sprocket and the outer clutch shell in order to prevent the spocket from turning. Good Luck, Steve

What are the torque specs for the derby bolts on hd fxst

84 - 108 in/lbs. Do NOT use loktite and do not overtighten otherwise you will have dificulty in removing these later on. These are not structural bolts, simply cover bolts. For those without a torque wrench, a 'snug' fit will suffice.

Striped the nut on the rear strut just need to know the specs so i can get a new one dealership wont help


Subaru always states in their service manuals to replace all self locking nuts with new hardware, never reuse old nuts.

Tightening torque for the 3 nuts that fasten the strut to the body: 20 N-m (14.5 ft-lb)

The main strut rod nut torque spec is: 55 N-m (40.6 ft lbs)
