    Easy To INSTALL? Also I'm replacing the Screws and Bolts On My Primary With Chrome Ones. Should I put locktite on and if so BLUE OR RED?


    Thanks

    Very easy to do as far as shift linkage, just remember that most are adjustable as far as the shift pedal height where it is comfortable for you.

    No locktite but do torque them in the proper sequence on the bolts. Some use an anti seize on the bolts.

    Thanks. You wouldn't know what the torque is on them would you?

    The screws and bolts on the primary should have blue loctite on them. verify the torque in the book.The best thing to do is change them one at a time that way you don't break the seal on the gaskets.:57:

    The torque is not much If I remember right agout 15- 17 ftlbs don't have my manual right here. You don't want to over torque them or you'll end up stripping them out:s
