Question ?Torque Values For Common Maintenance Items?

Hey folks! I've tried searching around but have not found much. What I would like to do is post up a thread (hopefully get it stickied) with the torque values for the stuff we mess with most:
Drain plugs; oil, axle fill/ drain, transfer case fill/ drain.
Brake caliper mounting bolts
Spark plugs
Lug nuts (I know, it's in the owners manual)
Trailer hitch mounting bolts
Etc, etc...

Unfortunately, what I have found can vary by up to 20 lb-ft depending on where you find it. Things like the oil plug aren't as big a deal, but I would really like for my calipers to be correct. Besides, I am one of those anal retentive mechanical engineering types So I need ya'lls help. If you can find verified value for a bolt/ plug/ fastener then let me know what it is and where you found it.
Thanks!!

Re: ?Torque Values For Common Maintenance Items?

I've found that what I have been using from the LXForums and 300C Forums are pretty similar.
Oil Drain Plug is 22 ft lbs
Plugs are 12-14 ft lbs
Brake calipers are 44 ft lbs (Not the Caliber Mounting Bolts)
Wheel Lugs are 120 ft lbs
But I too am looking for a Service Manual Reference to continue my work at home instead of pouring money into any dealership.

Try "mechanic's feel". Unless I'm putting an engine together, it's worked for me for nearly 40 years...

Re: ?Torque Values For Common Maintenance Items?

I'm a bit more particular. Riding motorcycles at +150mph will do that to you.
