    Early 911S Rookie Needs Torque Specs

    Hello - I'm just completing my first oil change on the '67 911S I bought from Rick Cabell, and notice that page E 125 in my factory manual is blank...that's where the index says the engine torque specs are. #$%^&^(*!!!

    Could someone please provide me specs for the engine / oil Tank drain plugs, and the engine sump cover nuts?

    Also, what's a good source for this info? I'm compulsive about using a toraue wrench!

    Thanks, Bob S.

    67 911S Canary/Lemon yellow, sunroof coupe produced w/100L tank. Until determined otherwise, 306943S appears to be 1 of 1, and among the earliest 911s with a 100L tank. The 911s initial participation in a competitive event, the 1965 Monte Carlo Rally, was fitted with a 100L tank (#300055). Seeking additional info on earliest 100L tank fitments to 911s.

    Mine is not blank, but the torque spec for those bolts is not there anyway. I believe the two large bolts for the oil drain plugs (the ones with the aluminum crush washers) are torqued to something like 27-32 ft. lbs., just enough to crush the washer and seal. The small bolts which hold the sump plate on are less, about 8-10 ft. lbs. Wayne Dempsey lists 31 and 8 ft. lbs., respectively, in his book.
