    Hey Stephen, what is the torque spec on the center eye bolt for your HP engine mounts? If no specs then do I just tighten it super tight or what?
    Thanks for your time
    Burt

    We never get out the torque wrench for those. Just tighten them up and go. They are fairly good sized bolts and you should have nylock nuts with them. You should be able to feel that they are tight enough.
    No 5' cheaters needed.

    They're a 9/16 grade 5 so 80 ft-lb or so will work just fine. This is pretty darn tight with hand tools in that space.
