Help! I am ready to put the 1296 engine back in to the Sptifire, but I can't find the torque wrench setting for the crankshaft bolt. I've looked in the Haynes book as well as several other sources. Oddly, the book says 150 lbs./ft. for the 1500 engine, but no listing for the 1147 and 1296. Here it is Monday, and Saturday we're supposed to drive from Phoenix to Prescott. I don't like this last minute stuff. T.T.

Hi, 71-80 take the same bolt, i would go with 150 for all years. Sounds like a fun trip. Enjoy
