What are the torque specs for the transmission, PTU, and RDU drain plugs? I have only found the oil drain plug online:

Oil: 26ft/lb
Trans:
PTU:
RDU:

These should be listed in the Helm service manual.

Snug?

That's a technical term. Yup.

If it leaks it's not tight enough. If you just snapped the head off... way too tight.

More seriously, anything with a copper seal should be 25ft/lb or so. But honestly, I've never used a torque wrench on such connections/fittings...

ETA: I don't mean to derail. As a list of torque specs for all things will be a great reference.

There's no rocket science in general bolt torque it's a standard value. Unless its a big end cap, head bolts or some TTY bolt. For example a grade 8.8 10 X 1.5 bolt will be 37/28 ft/lbs dry/lubed. Its just about bolt dia,grade and clamping force. So if there are no specific torque requirements mentions use the std table.

Thank you for the feedback. I'm accustomed to following the Helm manual, however, I didn't feel like dropping $170 for a PDF.

Thanks, do you know if the fill plugs are the same torque spec?

I corrected my original post! But nothing I can do for the one that quoted me! Thanks for noticing the typo
