Default 7.3L torque specs.....

This is information I got off the web on the torque specs for the 7.3L Powerstroke... Thought it might come in handy for the DIY guys that do not have the book with the torque specs in it...

Feel free to add torque specs if there are any missing in this post.. Lets keep the torque specs limited to just the engine and the components that bolt onto the engine... if there is thread on here already with these specs post a link to it that way we can compare the specs...

I took and put the torque specs in red for the ones that need to be done in different stages... then every other one i did in a different color so it is easy to tell them apart..

Thanks and enjoy!!!

Handy list, it would be even handier if the lines in green were a different color.

You know I agree... Arisley what color would you recommend??? Would Dark blue Or a color close to the same as my screen name??? How about this one? Or this one??

And After a color gets picked out would there be chance I could get permission to go back and change it???

What about common stuff, injectors, gps, comp wheels , I've seen a lot of threads asking for tq specs on Injectors and such. Didn't see them on this list.

Check the library, all of the engine stuff is there I think. DI has a complete assembly manual on their website too.

Ok I wasn't sure. Just thought it would be good if it was all combined in one thread. And yes glow plugs. After seeing that thread with the guy that has a bunch bent it made me wonder

It should be 21 FTLBs. This is Factory specs. Sometimes the clutch manufacturer has different specs then factory.

Forgot about this one.. Sorry!!! Here it is.

ARP suggests following Ford recommended torque sequence when tightening there head studs.

First step should be done to 65 FTLB
Second step should be to 85 FTLB
Third step should be done to 105 FTLB
The forth and last step to 125 FTLB

Hot re torque done to the same specs. IMHO when that is done you can just start with 85 FTLB then go up from there.

DieselInnovations (Good Old Dave Lott) has torque specs on their website for both complete factory and information on installing aftermarket studs.
