The head bolt torque for the Dodge 6 cylinder and V-8 engines is 50 ft. lbs. torque. If it is a diesel engine, the torque is 90.4 ft. lbs. Tighten the bolts by working from the center out, and alternating side to side. This prevents warping of the head.
The torque specs for a Cadillac depend on which engine it has. For most 425, 572, 368, and 500 engines, the torque for the head bolts is 115 ft. pounds. The torque for the cam bolts is 25 ft. pounds, and the torque for the valve covers is 10 ft. pounds.
For the 1996 Chevy S-10 4.3 liter, the torque specs for the crankshaft damper bolts is 70 ft. lbs. For the cylinder head bolts, the torque is 65 ft. lbs, and for the engine mount-to-head bolts, the torque is 35 ft. lbs. For the engine mount-to-frame bolts, the torque is 52 ft. lbs.
The transmission has to come out, the pump is located be hind the torque converter. Slide the torque converter off the main shaft. There is 8 bolts holding the pump in. Two of the bolt holes will have larger threads in the pump. Thread larger bolts in the threads,they will act as a puller.
If you have an automatic transmission, check or have the tourque converter bolts for tightness. I almost junked and engine due to noise under load and it was loose torque converter bolts. It sounds like enigine knocking.
I believe these are torque to yield bolts and the specs are: Initial torque to 19 Ft/Lbs Tighten an additional 75 degrees It's also not a good idea to reuse these bolts as they are stretched when tightened.
Remove the lower cover plate on the transmission to engine to gain access to the bolts and remove them. You will have to rotate the flywheel to get to all of them. Remove the driveshaft and drop the transmission.
