Can anybody tell me what the valve cover bolts has for torque?
The books say 3 ft.nm but I have a torque key with Nm and Ft-Lb?
Many thanks and God Bless

Hey Ton, my book shows 50 inch pounds of torque for the 454 valve cover bolts, so that would be 4.166 foot pounds on your wrench.

In case you need them & can't find them here are some other torque specs for your 454
Cylinder head bolts... 80 ft lbs
Intake manifold........ 30 ft lbs
Exhaust manifolds..... 20 ft lbs
Rocker arm studs ..... 50 ft lbs
Main bearing caps....110 ft lbs
Connecting rods....... 50 ft lbs
Flywheel bolts.......... 65 ft lbs
Harmonic balancer.... 85 ft lbs
Spark plugs............. 15 ft lbs
