    Ok i read somewhere on the internet that the Oil pump bolt should be Torqued to 60 ft lbs. Then i looked in the Haynes manual and it says 115 in lbs. Logic tells me 115 in lbs = a little less the 10 ft lbs..... What do i torque this thing to?....

    65 lb ft sounds right. Being that it is just a retaining bolt, torque isnt critical as long as its tight enough to not loosen up. Id say the haynes manual is way off though.
