    If you can find a copy of your original 1961 Jeep Service manual, you might find them there. There are some torque specs in the back pages (Section U p275) of the -R6 reprinted Universal Manual. You have to be careful with the Universal Service Manual however. Sometimes the spec varies by year and the manual seems to have most of the specs from the 1965 models, the year for the CJ's when the manual (Form SM-1002-R6) was last reprinted by Jeep.

    When you cant find the spec, you will have to use the SAE Bolt torque guide. I have bumped into that a few times.

    The SM-1002-XX manual was reproduced in a running format. Each edition was intended to cover prior model years. Sometimes the prior specs and process were left out. The -R 1 through 6 indicate the reprint edition with -R6 being the last one. The -R6 is the one I received from KW. Here is a link to some of the older editions.

    This is a link to some of the original reprints. You can only look at the covers, I think this Link is to Walks old site. It is no longer functioning. If you want to try to get these publications, Mike at KW should know how to try to find them.

    Here is another source for old manuals on CD:

    Thanks for the references, Bmorgil! I'll have to look into that. I've got the torque references for different bolt sizes and grades, but so many things on the Jeep don't use standard bolts/nuts and I hate to just rely on what I find on the internet, although most of the time, the internet stuff is accurate. I'll try to find one of the actual service manuals somewhere.
