    Body Torque Specifications

    I am doing a body off on my 1938 Dodge coupe. Anyone have a good idea of what the torque spec should be on the 1/2 inch "body to frame" bolts that employ the rubber insulators? Much appreciated.

    I did mine a couple of years ago and dont remember the torque. Just tightened them a bit and made sure all of the doors worked properly.
    I used those nylon vibration proof nuts.

    This is from a 1956, 1957 and 1958 Chrysler shop manual. I would imagine that it is similar torque specs to what you need.
