According to the Dodge FSM it states 212 inch/pounds for thermostat housing. I would never tighten them that much even. I just use a 8mm socket on a 1/4 inch nut driver handle that all. (No ratchet).

212 inch/pounds or 17.6 foot/pounds. I won't consider even tightening that much... So what I'm saying is I agree with just snug comment!

i torque my lugnuts to 140 ft.lbs.

hers some http://dodgeram.org/tech/dsl/mt_2_feb98/torque_specs_isb.html

Little difference between foot/pounds and inch/pounds. Just like ruler there is 12 inch/pounds to 1 foot/pound...

I generally try to torque bolts to a half turn before they break :whistle:Honestly though you kinda get a feel for it for the size of fastener you are working with. Don't need a 1/2" drive breaker bar for a 3/8" bolt and a 1/4" drive ratchet probably isn't up to the job for lug nuts.
