    In the torque list, it says not to use new bolts for the oil squirters. Why?

    some people have said that new bolts will worth themselves out.
    I tried finding the thread where I read that, but failed.
    ive heard it mentioned a few times, so I thought it would be good to share.

    just use a general torque spec

    1/4x20unc 7 ft-lbs
    5/16x18 unc 14 ft-lbs
    3/8x16 unc 24 ft-lbs
    7/16 x 14 unc 38 ft-lbs
    1/2x13 unc 60 ft-lbs

    that should get you close
