    I hav the arp 3.5 bolts they would only give me the angle 30# then 50 deg. My torque wrench cliked at 110-112# on every one. the angle method is a pain !!!! it's a 2 man job. I hear there's a "torque wrench" that does angle I bet big $$$$$$$$$$$

    I use oliver rods all the time at 80 lbs. torque never had a probem with them I don,t think that 110 is correct but maybe you are using different rod bolts.???

    Yes the torque wrench that reads degrees and lbs, is in the tune of a 500 note, Snap On. Guys in our shop have then, some OEM stuff torque to 45 ft lbs and 12 degrees, as an example, pretty cool deal, but I will keep my $100 Craftsman.

    I made a ref. mark and then backed the bolt up about a 1/4 turn. Took 92lbs to get back to the mark. Your results may vary.

    The WSB bolt is the same bolt ARP sells as the L19. The "WSB" is Oliver's name for the bolt. 75lbs with moly is what I torque them to.
    The 3.5MP is ARP's version of the SPS Carrbolt. 115lbs is not hard to believe.

    Default Oliver wsb rod bolt torque

    I just finished my 502 a few months back and used Oliver billet rods with the 7/16 wsb bolts. Here's the link for the torque + angle method from Oliver. Just scroll through the pages till you find it....but it is in there. www.oliverconnectingrods.com/.../OliverCatalog2011Web.pdf

    When I did mine I used the torque + angle method using a Snap on torque wrench. Then checked the stretch on the bolt using a stretch gauge. It's a pricey tool at $500.00 but sure is nice! I also found that unless I lubed the hell out of the bolts the torque readings changed quite a bit. So, if you dont use enough lube on the bolts or don't relube them if you have to retorque them.....the final torque will change from attempt to attempt. I ended up with 86-89 lbs/ft when I was finished. I used the Arp moly lube on mine. The Snap on torque wrench will vibrate in the handle when you reach the torque and/or angle you have it set for. In "angle mode" when you reach the set angle it will also flash the total torque on the bolt. That's how I knew what my torque reading on each bolt was.

    The link didnt work for me so here's the info: (sorry this took up so much space!)
