Help PLZ

I am reassembling the 2.5l on my 97 se and the Haynes manual said 19ftlb of torgue for the rocker bolts and that snapped the bolt in half..... Do I need new bolts or is that the wrong torgue??

I checked my books and Haynes states 19ft lbs The Chrysler manual says 21 so your right on. Bolts do brake, so good luck.

You could get it repaired/calibrated. Work requires mine to get calibrated anually.

I have thought about this but am unsure where it could be done around here or how much it should cost.

The place we use is an equipment rental company that is a proto tool dealer but the brand of torque wrench doesn't matter. Mine are mac and matco. I'm not sure what it costs since the company I work for pays for it, all I do is sign a blank ticket.
