    What size are the bolts? 6mm bolts are about 6 ft lbs, 8mm bolts are 20 ft lbs, 10mm bolts are 40 ft lbs, or one grunt before strip. I rarely use a torque wrench for things like a waterpump. The only time I might, is if I have the engine on a stand and had just rebuilt it and have the torque wrench out anyway.

    So are you saying i can just tighten down the bolts with a socket no torque? I was just curious as it seems most everything else in the manual needed to be torgued. But if you are saying just put gasket on and tighten it down........would you use a sealer?

    That is how I would do it, but I have been doing it a long time. And yes use sealer, I use either ultra-gray or ultra-black RTV.
