Torque Spec for Gearbox Bolts

Postby The Hairy Camper » 29 Mar 2020, 21:03

I know i need to buy a Haynes manual, but does anyone know the torque spec for the bolts holding the gearbox to the engine? If they have one.

Cheers.

Can't believe it! When I was looking for one over ten years ago they were rare as rocking horse poo.
Plenty on Google but I guess due diligence is needed to be sure to get the real deal. My search just turned up JK but if you shop around for a better price make sure you get the right one.
