I think he means engine torque(power), not bolt or nut torque, if thats any makes sense.

'79 280CE with 226,000 miles
'76 240D 4 speed with 190,000
'85 300D Turbo with 266,000 miles


GONE but not forgotten
'76 300D with 195,300 miles
"83 300D with 174,000 miles

No, I meant nut/bolt items. I'm getting ready to redo the front suspension. They sell a kit on ebay that has ball joint, upper control arms and a bunch of fittings/rebuild stuff to get it back up to snuff. Plus, I'm changing rotors and pads and need the torque specs for the calipers.

Wow - the reviews are not very good. Besides, I have the disk with the steps, I just need torque values. If they are not free, I will use my common sense.
