A generic spec for 3/8" bolts/studs is 30-35 ft-lb. I think 45 ft-lb is too much unless you have specific authoritative instructions.

Another way to do this kind of stuff when you don't have specs is to use a combination wrench of the correct size. Pull firmly on it, but not hard. It's the keep it simple approach. Each wrench in a set is a little longer than the last for a reason.

Thanks RickL...I pulled them all down tight anyway...I just like to know they are all the same torque reading ..I guess it's just a "me"" thing knowing that.:D GKK
