Clutch Finger Bolt Torque?

Postby DonMountain » Mon Jul 26, 2021 7:49 pm

I replaced the clutch a few years ago, and one of the clutch finger adjustment bolts came loose, of course along with its locking nut. Does anybody have any idea what the torque specifications are for that locking nut on the clutch finger adjustment bolt? The bolts with the round ends that fit into an indent in the clutch finger to position it?

It's 1/4-20 IIRC. Torque spec for that size bolt is 8 ft-lbs.

I don't think there's an IH torque spec for that specific bolt.
