    Question '88 Delta 88 Royal: Torque specs for starter bolts

    I would like to know the torque specs for the two bolts used to mount the starter to a 3.8L engine of a 1988 Olds Dellta 88 Royal. While I found some specific bolt torque specs in the Haynes Manual for the Full Size Oldsmobile ( #1627 Date 1990,1992), I could not find it for the starter. I also could not find any generic spec for an "everything else" category.

    Hi parkchester,

    The torque spec for your starter mounting bolts is 35 ft-lbs.

    There are generic fastener tightening specs up near the front of the manual (should be page 12 in your copy).

    It is painful to admit to missing that page.
    Starter is now installed and works fine.

    thanks
