I have misplaced my build sheet from last year.

I need to know the torque spec on L 19 rod bolts for my BBC. They are a 1/2" Head.

I did a search, here and on ARP's site and can't find anything
Thanks,
Pat

80 lbs sounds familar. I can't even find the paper that came with the bolts. I ususally keep all of this stuff in my car book.
I know it was quite a bit higher than the 2000 series bolts

You are correct. No parts washer, brake cleaner, nothing. Just wipe them with a rag to clean and do not touch with fingers.

I almost put mine through the parts washer when I got them. Good thing I called Callies.

i have always used my fingers on the L19 bolts..been using L19's for over 10 years..never had a bolt failure.everyone says it but i dont believe it...if my fingers can cause a bolt failure i need to use a different bolt.
