    I checked the maint. chart, and no torque spec. Gives one for the oil filter though. Go figure.
    PM me and I'll try and email it to ya.

    I found the torque spec. in the owners manual. In one section it calls for 7 ft.lb, in another, it calls for 6.5 ft lb. So, like I said, tight!

    Did you get that chart?

    I'll try and send the Owners Manual.
