Service Manual Wrong? Correct Torque for 2005 3.7L Water Pump Bolts
I have the Service Manual for my 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee (WK). On page 7-15, which is a page of specs, it shows the water pump bolt torque to be 17 ft-lbs. Yet on page 7-62, in the water pump "Installation" procedure, it says to torque the water pump bolts to 40 ft-lbs. Quite a difference.
I don't want to crush the water pump gasket if it should be 17 ft-lbs and I don't want leaks, if it should be 40 ft-lbs.
Can anyone settle this, obviously they have an editing mistake in the 2005 Service manual. I would love to hear from someone that has a service manual for another model (near the 2005 model year) that has the same 3.7L engine.
I had to put it together and went with the 17 ft-lbs. I figured it wouldn't be good to torque to 40 ft-lbs and then back off to 17 ft-lbs if 17 is the correct number. No leaks in my first heat up cycle after installation.
Thanks in advance for your help.
