When removing the nose cone on a 3800sc to change the coupler in the supercharger, what do I torque the nose cone bolts to when reinstalling it? I searched "coupler" but couldn't find the torque setting. Also is there a torque pattern to putting the nose come back on?
Thanks

its a really well machined surface... I used german toque specs on mine....

15-20 would be a good guess if I had to.

Lou , Identify the bolt diameter , then the tensile strength from the embossed head. Whether SAE or metric, charts on line will give the proper torque setting. If the bolt is plated don't lubricate it. Criss cross pattern if you cannot find specific instruction. IMO

Thanks, I tightened it to 15. I saw that on a you tube video.
