Every reference I have, including the 66 Mustang shop manual, does not specify the torque setting for the tapered bolts that fasten the front crossmember. It would be appreciated if anyone could provide that info.

Alex,

That's what I said!

An old time mechanic (my Dad) once told me "torque is in your arm" you don't need no stankin torque wrench. LOL
