"Maximum torque: 5,608,312 lb/ft at 102rpm"

I wonder what it would make at 1000 rpm if it were possible for it to rev that high? images/icons/shocked.gif

graemlins/lol.gif Nah, it at 102 rpm it wouldn't make that nasty dying blender noise we have all come to know and loathe, no matter what silly little muffler you put on it.

Funny enough, I saw a diesel engined car today with a muffler graemlins/lol.gif It sounded like a tractor going through puberty...

images/icons/wink.gif I drive a diesel too, but no muffler graemlins/driving.gif

Where does one stand to torque the cyinder head studs? I wonder what the torque settings are for something that big. T.T.

Here is the VERY scary part. Snap-on Tools makes sockets for stuff like that. There is a part number (725IM) in an older catalog that represents a 2 1/2" drive 25 piece piece set from 2 1/4" to 5 5/8". The last published price was over $30,000.00. How do I know? My e-mail adress is snaponbob@cox.net.

I wonder what kind of mileage this would get around town in my mini van.
