    EFI truck?


    If so it is on the pass side rear part of the engine block....


    Carb is right up by the pass side fender, unless someone has moved it.

    Whoa! no don't go to 20ft lbs!!! They should be set to 43-48 INCH lbs!! that's about 4-5ft lbs.

    Set it to proper torque. Don't be a novice fool and think if 10ft lbs, then 20ft lbs must be better. It's like if the bottle calls for 2 aspirin, you'll take 4 cuase more must be better :rolleyes:
