The timing cover is not a critical cover so don't sweat the tq value. Just put some blue lock on the bolts and snug them down. The bolts are very small so DON'T over-tighten.shrinkman2 said:thanks Rose. It's not the primary cover, it would be called the timing cover. I am going to try to pick up a manual today.....they were out when I went last time. Can't seem to remember to order one till I need it.
