Anyone out there that may have a manual, what are the torque specs on the engine oil plug and shaft oil plug? Drained the oil last night for the first service and will be filling her back up tonight. And BTW, draining both couldn't be easier. :crazyloco Thanks for the help guys! :smile

Probably a little late with the specs, but here they are:

Per the 2008 C-14 Service Manual, torque value for the final drive filler plug is 18 in-lb and the gear case oil drain bolt is 78 in-lb. It should also be noted that the Service Manual calls for the gasket on the drain bolt to be replaced and the o-ring on the filler plug to be "in place". The gasket on the oil drain bolt should be inspected and replaced if worn, cracked or otherwise damaged.
