    A lot of times 3/8" torque wrenches are inch pounds. Might double check, just a thought.

    Yeah 140 lb-ft is pretty tight. On the engine stand it took both my wife and myself to steady and get enough force on the wrench to click it.

    Thank you very much! Especially for your write up.

    Made doing my timing cover, water pump, and oil pump a ton easier.
