Would a underdrive pulley have a torque spec ?

  1. This is actually for our 98 mustang 3.8L V6. I have a under drive pulley but I am wondering if there is a torque spec. I have a torque wrench.
  2. yes, I do believe there is one. I cant remember for the life of me where I found the number, but I'm almost positve there is one.
  3. I really never thought it would be this hard, I have made this same post on 5 forums, i thought for sure somebody would know this
  4. i have my install instrustions at home withmy stock pulley. I'm almost sure it was on there.
  5. Just did mine, and going from memory (this is for the '01 too), the crank bolt is 125 ft/lb and the pulley bolts are like 30 ft/lb. To tighten the crank bolt, you'll need to keep the engine from turning. 125 ft/lb is a lot.
  6. that sounds right to me, I was going to say it, but didn't want to just throw out a guess.
