Hi, I’m putting my engine back together and the torque specs in my Haynes manual states 132 lbs or 15nm for the three water pump bolts. This just seems way to high- I’ve seen other posts around stating its 11 lbs. Any help is appreciated- thanks in advance.

correct

It's correct if the books says 132 inch pounds. which is 11 foot pounds. I would use a small torque wrench that has inch pounds scale on it. Good luck man. They have some that go from 5 to 200 inch pounds, 1/4 inch drive perfecto..LOL :D anything below that is just "skill of the craft" tightening.
