Does anyone know where I could find a chart with bolt torque specs for a Midget 1500?


I have a torque wrench and was wondering if there's a chart with most the car's torque specifications.

I'd like to print it out and throw it up on the garage wall.

If there isn't, I will certainly keep looking for the information, maybe I could help create such a chart




I am also looking to find the stock filler plug sizes for the transmission. I believe it's 7/16 for the male plug?


Thanks again, this forum is the best resource I have!

P145 of the Bentley reprint of the BL manual has the torque values.

Any of the original BL shop manuals has the torque values in the first few pages, "General Specs".

If you don't have either, PM me and I'll scan the page for you.



Offence is the opiate of the humourless.
