    Hey guys need some help.

    Putting together my 73 Cuda and just got the k frame back from the powdercoater.

    The 73 Chrysler shop manual is not clear on the torque settings for the (4) k frame bolts to chassis.

    It basically gives you the torque setting for an isolator type k frame from the 73 b body.

    I torqued the bolts to 80 lbs until someone gives me some better information - I could find from 50 to 80 lbs for the isolator type but this is hard connection.

    Please provide if can

    Thanks to all.

    Ralph

    I would think you shoud just tighten them with just about everything you got, aren't those like 5/8ths bolts?
