Did you look in section 5 for the normal torque for those bolts? I donít recall if they are different

I did not check section 5 but figured there should be a specific value, the ISO mounts are listed at 160-190 inch pounds but nothing for the firewall mount, its a 3/8" bolt.

No special torque mentioned, so standard -6 torque -- 160 in/lbs. then continue as needed up to 190 in/lbs to align the hole in the bolt to the nut castellations so you can fit in the cotter pin. (All according to my old original KAIs..)
