    Can anyone say what the torque setting is for the primary cover bolts should be. The sevice manual says 80-120lb but that seems too high and I dont want to strip the threads. Cheers

    If that's what the manual says, then use that setting. Make sure you are using INCH Lbs and not FT lbs.

    I think it is 7 to 9 ft lbs.

    7-9 FT lbs is 84-108 IN lbs.

    multiply foot pounds X 12 = inch pounds or divide inch pounds by 12 = foot pounds.
