Oh Randy...

Check this out:

  1. Remove the engine oil filter, fill with clean engine oil, and reinstall. Tighten
    Tighten the oil filter to 24 N·m (18 lb ft).
  2. Remove the oil pressure sensor.
  3. Install the M16 x 1.5 adapter P/N 509375.

I thought it was funny that there is a torque spec on the oil filter.

I was actually pointing out that the oil pressure sensor is metric. That was something Randy just couldn't believe was true. I just found it funny that there is actually a torque spec on the filter.

There's a torque spec on darn near everything, even stuff like trim screws.

That'd be the Air Force... Have to use a $800 torque wrench on $0.05 trim screws on a 25 year old falling apart truck. Then you have a 14 step torque process that's in 3 different 800 page books, along with a 7 level check, 2 or 3 checklists and at least 2 computer programs to track all this, course they don't work worth a shit, so we have to fill it out by hand too.
