    Manley Aluminum rod torque

    I purchased a 468 with 10 year old Manley aluminum rods. The rods only have 20 passes on them. I'm going through the motor and can't find torque specs for the rods. They have 7/16 ARP 12 point bolts. Can someone help me with torque specs for these rods? Thanks...Jeff.

    Its best to use bolt stretch on rods, If they are the arp 2000's around 6 to 6.5 thou should work

    I don't have a stretch guage. There's no number on the bolts, just stamped ARP.

    tightening rods down to a ft lb, should be good enough-- rod stretch or not
    use plasti gauge to measure the correct gap
    even if they are a lil stretched the torq shouldn't be affected, always measure properly,and your ride will keep on running
