Hey guys,

I am installing a pair of Intuitive frame sliders on my 929. The instructions state that the bolts should be torqued to manufacturer specs, anybody have that figure?

Thanks

Yes sir, my service manual says 29 ft. lbs.

29lbs is pretty weak. Are you sure that is pounds. Should be like 45lbs. I tightened mine to about 90lbs.

Damn! 90 ft-lbs!. Even with 29 I feel like I'm gonna break the bolts, I don't want that to happen. At 29 ft-lbs I could hear something crackling. I don't think the bolts that come with the sliders can take that much torque.
