If by "double pulley", you mean the crankshaft pulley, it's 200Nm (148ft.lbs) + 90 degrees. Sorry to hear you've sheared a bolt, I hope it wasn't the crankshaft pulley bolt.

Also, the crankshaft pulley bolt is a 'torque to yield' bolt, meaning you should not re-use an old one. Yes, a new bolt is pricey (for a bolt) but re-used ones could, err, snap.

Hi Chris, thanks for the reply..
Luckily it’s not the crank pulley
It’s the top double pulley to the left it runs the Serpentine and Supercharger belts.
