Hello, I looking for information regarding a torque spec for the big LH thread oil pump worm gear nut that screws onto the timing end of the crankshaft. Old Britts website says, "Oil pump worm gear/nut (06-7889, LH thread) 15 ft lb". But that seems so low! Maybe torgue needs to be low to prevent distorting the triangle shaped backplate under the pinion gear?
