    My 700r4 trans mount was broken so I replaced it with a new one. Anyone have a torque spec for the mount? (Besides PFT) I don't want to wreck the new one! Thanks, Bruce

    PS. I'm working on a 1991 K5 and like the title says, I only need the torque spec for the mount to crossmember nuts.

    Just use a 1/2" ratchet and tighten as much as you can go. I usually buzz it with my electric impact. Mechs at the dealer usually only use torque specs for engine work. Beyond that, it's just "Get the mofo tight" Trust me, I know........

    i tightened it down a pretty good amount, but it felt pretty soft and I wasn't sure of those studs were going to come right out of the mount as I tightened the nuts.

    Nah, should be good. Just push the tailshaft around to see if you get movement, if not, you're good! Maybe put some loc-tite on the bolts. I've had them fall out of the t-case adapter before.
