    I needs some torque numbers.

    1. Water pump bolts
    2. Oil sump bolts
    3. Timing belt covers.

    Anyone know these numbers? I'm about to put it all back together. Your help is needed.

    Torque specs are in the "Ferrari 328 Tech Specs, Publications List, Recall Campaign, Service Bulletin Index " Also, in the FSM's, all can be found in the 'Private Document Collection':

    I don't know if you'll find a torque spec for any of the nuts you mention. My experience: None of the bolts or nuts you mention should be tightened "tightly". For me, pan nuts (6mm IIRC) are tightened with a stub-handled (4") rachet wrench about 45 - 60 degrees turn past initial bite. You can go a bit tighter on the WP but remember it is a steel stud in an aluminum casing. Cam covers (from memory these are a 12mm stud) I use a 6 inch rachet wrench tightened by feel. Having said that, I thought I was being R-E-A-L-L-Y gentle with one and pulled the studs through the threads on the front cam cover. Maybe the metal wasn't ageing well (26 1/2 years) in the repeated heating and cooling. Had to pull everything apart and get a helicoil put in.

    FYI, the master tech at Continental has warned me the ones to be very careful with are the carb nuts. The Webers are a composite material (we used to call it "monkey metal" in the old days) and it is very hard to repair unlike aluminum which can be welded.
