Your torque spec is correct, 75-85 ft lbs. If I recall correctly, the head of the original bolt has a greater diameter and are not a thick as a normal grade 8 bolt. I believe they were designed that way due to a clearance issue. Not sure though. If it were me I'd use original Ford bolts, probably spendy, but well worth not having the aggravation of pulling it apart again. Ford used two different length bolts for the single and double clutch. Make sure yours has the correct length and re-chase the threads.

The difference between grade 8 and the Ford spec would surely tell us that the Ford bolt is made to withstand more pressure. Hope you get er fixed.

If I understand your post, you're not sure about the "self-locking". There are several types. Some have a chemical applied to the threads that acts as a thread locker. Sort of looks like Teflon tape. Google it and you'll find some. McMasters - Carr probably has them.

I've heard the arguments for non-detergent oils but would never trade it for today's formulations. Paint is another, the modern acrylic enamels are great for resistance to grease and fuel stains, retaining their shine and they last forever; unlike enamels and lacquers . Still another is the alternator. No doubt using the original generator keeps the tractor pure, but for thos ... [Read Article]
