    You'll have to be more specific. There are no torque specs on the pushrod for a Sportster engine. The stock pushrods are solid and do not have an adjustment on them and therefore no torque specifications. The pushrod tubes are held in place by the heads. Now the rocker plate that the rocker arms are in have two different sized bolts in them and they torque to 15-18 foot pounds for the 5/16" bolts and 10-13 foot pounds on the 1/4" bolts. Good luck Steve

Pushrods on a completely stock 1993 are one piece and have no torque spec as they are not of the adjustable variety. If you do in fact have "adjustable pushrods" and have set the adjustment according to the pushrods manufacturer's specification in conjunction with a good Harley service manual the nuts on the pushrod need to be good and snug........Tight, but do not bear down on the wrenches. Use your best judgement.

I need the torque specs. on a 1992 ezgo, 4 cycle gas engine, connecting rod cap bolt

I'd just use the standard torque value appropiate for the bolt size. It should be a grade 8 bolt if it's SAE size or grade10.1 if metric.
