By shoulder your talking about the front and rear of the pan or the sides?

Just reading straight from the torque chart.

If there are 2 different size bolts used on the oil pan I would do the smaller ones 15 and the larger ones 23. On my old 1979 engine it has 2 larger bolts at the back of the engine, and one or two big bolts at the front. I'm not sure what the Etech motors have front and back.

By shoulder he means the bolt bottoms on the shoulder and the rubber grommet holds pressure. Just like the valve covers. Same torque 15ft.lbs.
