Make sure you have a copy of the shop manual and follow the instructions. Good detailed info.

I usually use a little heat before I take the bolts off just to loosen the loctite

thanks guys,yes we discussed removal sequence reverse to take off and then put on,first, he recommends you must put new gasket on and start 15lbs sequence to put on then to 25 ,anybody recommend a quality torque wrench for the socket sizes necessary(8mm ,10mm exchaustmounts)?

FYI. I use mostly Craftsman hand tools. For what the Snap On/MAC/Matco cost, I have 3-4 sets of Craftsman. And if I break one, I walk over to the tool box and grab another. No waiting for days/week to get a replacement......if he even has it on the truck.

n.j i don,t know if you read my bio , i,m a carpenter/ furniture builder by trade, i, own about $10,000 in tools, ,80% craftman, i just want one torque(which i do not own) to be dead-on accurate, i feel like #hit not using a torque on my bolt-ons (rideplate-impeller etc.) i went "old school" hand tighten and some for these .your the man!

No sense in my preaching to the choir here, you know all about tools.
If I had to do it all over again, I would just buy a Craftsman and have it calibrated every so often depending on use. Not go out and buy both.
Let us know what you end up getting.
