Hi all, just have a question about the torque specification on a EZGO, Kawasaki FJ400D connecting rod. The service manual give a torque of 52 in-lb. If my math is correct, that works out to be 4.3 ft-lb. I've rebuild several engines and I don't think I've ever seen a torque for a rod less that 15 ft-lb. I can't seem to find anyone who has rebuild one of these newer engines. So if one of you out there has rebuilt one, what torque did you go with on the rod? Thanks
