I've gone through my Alfa manual ad I couldn't find the torque setting for the manual gearbox oil drain or the engine oil drain plugs, would someone know what they are?

I have a S4.

Thanks in advance,
Bob

For the record, page 86 of the S4 manual lists it as 7-8 kgm (51-58 lb-ft). Which always seemed kind of high to me but it hasn't stripped yet.

Sorry, wasn't being clear: this is in the owner's manual, not the service manual. The number seems to appear in a few places at different values.

Thanks for answering my questions.

And yes, I got new washers, I learned a long time ago to never reuse a copper washer. I'm assuming since copper is soft, it squishes a bit.

Just for info, the new oil pan washers came from IAP, I couldn't find the gear box ones on their site but found 22mm copper washers at Canadian Tire that fit very nicely.

Thanks,
Bob

S 4 oil drain plug torque

For the record, page 86 of the S4 manual lists it . Which always seemed kind of high to me but it hasn't stripped yet.
While this is responding to an earlier posting, I just looked at my 1991 Owner's Manual, and the torque listing of 7-8 kgm (51-58 lb-ft) can be found on page 70, but it may be on other pages, also.
