Torque value on oil pump

Post  75truck on August 18th 2016, 5:54 pm

Have a 84-d oil pump I'm putting on  a 429.  

What is torque spec for the 1/4" cover bolts?

What is torque specs for the 2 mounting bolts?

Is it suggested that studs be used instead of the mounting bolts.

I use 6-8 on the cover bolts and 35-40 on the pump to block mounting bolts. Others will have different opinions I'm sure.

That is as good as any for a general torque ... a lot will depend upon the fasteners used.

With or without a gasket?

Does this OP have two identities here ...?

The gasket being there or not will not make any difference as to the amount of stretch of the fastener.
