Torqu Specs for Warn 8274 Mounting Plate

Guys,

I just installed some tow hooks on my Warn 8274 winch plate and I cannot find for the life of me the torque specs for the bolts..

Anyone have an idea what the Torque Setting for the bolts is?


Thanks

Timber

As tight as you can get them with a 1/2" ratchet wrench... two grunts worth. The exact torque isn't critical so long as they're tightened pretty evenly and tightly.

I figured as much, but just wanted to verify! Thanks Jerry!

What size are the bolts? if they are 1/2" (not wrench size) 80 to 100 ft lb. would be pretty close

I believe that they are Grade 8 3/8" and 19mm..

I tightened them down with all of my strength w/ a 1/2 drive.. I didn't use a breaker bar or anything, but I am confident that they are tight enough.

The bolts that are included with winches from Warn for sure and likely Ramsey, Superwinch, etc. too are Grade 5.

You are correct Jerry! Over the weekend, I installed hooks on the top of my winch plate so I have to get longer bolts.. I was specifically looking for anodized grade 8... It was a bit of a scavenger hunt, but I finally took my existing bolt to Fastenal and it was a done deal from there. Painting them black was a bit of a chore though..
