I believe you on the money with it. Remember this is the max torque for that bolt. If the block is aluminum look up max torque for cast aluminum holes in that size. I'd play it a little safe and go with 20 ft/lbs max.Tell me if I am right here... it looks like M8... which is what my mounting bolts are... at class 10.9... come in at 26 ft/lbs... or 24 ft/lbs... depending on if they are fine threads or not. I 'think' they are standard pitch... right? So 24 ft/lbs... but then why is the head coming in at 12 ft/lbs when those rods are also M8... right?
EDIT: Hell, those are LUBRACATED numbers... seems 10.9 comes in at 35 fine and 32 standard with non lube...
