    PTO Cover Bolts

    Guys, why did I break 2 of the PTO cover bolts? I had the torque wrench set to 17 ft-lbs, as the manual says, though that seems very high. I just got some replacement bolts and I'm going to try tomorrow, but I don't feel like breaking more. Any tips or insight?

    17 ft lbs. Thats way to high. I'm not exactly sure what the torque should be but I doubt its over 8 ft lbs.

    I would say that is correct. 10 nm is about 7.5 ft lbs. Thats about what I figured it should be.

    Yes, it should be 10 N/m, or 88 lb/in, or 7.3 lb/ft.

    Just so you know you arent alone. I misread the manual also and broke one. I bet you read where the engine support brackets are 17lbs .

    the other bolts that were over tightened may be about to break too. if you don't feel the need to replace them, at least re-torque them.
