Re: 3/8x1.5 ARP 2000 rod bolt torque specs ( I SEARCHED)
Yes, I agree with the 28 ft/lbs. If youve already torqued them over that, they need to be replaced.
My machine shop made the EXACT SAME mistake! They torqued the rod bolts to 40#s thinking they were the 3/8ths bolts, they are actually 5/16ths bolts (3/8ths head). Needless to say, now I need all new rod bolts.
