Question Oil pan gasket without torque wrench?

pretty much thats my concern right now, i don't have a 1/4 torque wrench, and the 3/8 and 1/2 are to much for those bolts.

i didn't find any on the autopart stores near me for rent and buying is not in my budget right know.

i got the felpro permadry gasket, so any suggestions in doing the oil pan gasket "feeling the bolts".

Use a wrench with the smallest handle. Preferably a handle that fits inside your hand. Then apply 80-90% force to the handle when you torque the bolts/nuts. That would be my advice. The oil pan gasket shall appear squeezed and pushed-out not more than 1/8".

This is a 5 hour job for DIYers, so I'd advice against any 'improvisation'. Same with RTV, stick with Honda bond HT or anything of equivalent quality, as opposed to those cheap permatex ones.
