Re: How to torque crankshaft bolt - Saabnet.com Bulletin Board
I torqued mine with the wheels installed and car lowered to the ground. I had a manual tranny in my 9000 and put the transmission in reverse, with the wheels all well-blocked. Clockwise rotation of the crankshaft will cause the car to move backwards against the blocks. I wonder if you could do the same with your transmission in Park. That is, are the locking pins in the tranny strong enough that you could use them to prevent rotation of your crankshaft during torquing? I would think so, since you can park the car on a hill, using the locking pins to hold the car in place.
