Howdy. Torque # for 83I caliper bolts

Postby dogdoggybob » Sun May 22, 2011 11:31 am



I am new here - on the other 3 gl forums tho.

Thought I could download a free 83 I manual, but I guess not.

no matter.

What I need at the moment is the torque spec for the front and rear caliper bolts - the ones that attach to the bracket and or fork(front has 3

I have an 81 manual but it says 13ft. that seems low. Esp. since the front bolts seemed torqued pretty good.

Thanks

looking forward to checking the site out a bit more...

I have 3 GL's (cause that is all I have room for) :lol:

that sounds more like it.

would you happen to know the one for the rear?

Thanks again.

and is there a 83 manual download that is free? I was sent to a site that wanted $39 to download it.
