Re: Torque setting for sump bolts

It's always worth checking that the oil which appears down around the sump gasket isn't actually from the rocker box covers. Run you finger round the lower edges where the rocker box cover gaskets are to check for any weeps. Any escape here can run down the block and appear on the sump edges. Most V8s that I have had always week a little at the rear main bearing seal. Not a lot you can do about that apart from a major rebuild.
