    I have a 87 240 GL and need the front caliper mounting bolt torques. Any
    techs out there?

  2. From a point at sea, to the circles of your mind, this is ml:
    Use thread locking fluid and do them up 1½ - 2 grunts. This translates
    to about 75ftlbs.

    Mine were so tight I just got them out with a rattle gun. Had to weld the
    sockets on to stop them from jumping/slipping. Replacement bolts were only
    available from Volvo. No one else had sufficient hardness.
    I would probably recommend single using the bolts for this but that's up to
    My book also shows 75.
