iat=1,2,5,8,
with all 4 atom numbers sequentially instead of listing individually, but I use
amber7, not 8 (yet), so your way might work, too. The force looks a little high,
so maybe that's why you're not seeing a whole lot of resistance. Have you looked
at the trajectory (vmd or mddisplay) to see if the torsion is really moving?
I've rotated dihedrals before in order to do umbrella sampling, but I typically
break out the restraints in the DISANG file as follows:

#
# Drive to 75deg
&rst
iat=1,2,5,8, nstep1= 500001, nstep2= 600000,
iresid= 0, ifvari= 1, ninc= 0, imult= 0, ir6= 0,
r1= 30.0, r2= 60.0, r3= 60.0, r4= 90.0,
rk2=1.0, rk3=1.0,
r1a= 45.0, r2a= 75.0, r3a= 75.0, r4a= 105.0,
rk2a=5.0, rk3a=5.0,
&end
#
# Equilbration at 75deg
&rst
iat=1,2,5,8, nstep1= 600001, nstep2= 700000,
iresid= 0, ifvari= 0, ninc= 0, imult= 0, ir6= 0,
r1= 45.0, r2= 75.0, r3= 75.0, r4= 105.0,
rk2=5.0, rk3=5.0,
r1a= 45.0, r2a= 75.0, r3a= 75.0, r4a= 105.0,
rk2a=5.0, rk3a=5.0,
&end
#
# Data collection at 75deg
&rst
iat=1,2,5,8, nstep1= 700000, nstep2= 1000000,
iresid= 0, ifvari= 0, ninc= 0, imult= 0, ir6= 0,
r1= 45.0, r2= 75.0, r3= 75.0, r4= 105.0,
rk2=5.0, rk3=5.0,
r1a= 45.0, r2a= 75.0, r3a= 75.0, r4a= 105.0,
rk2a=5.0, rk3a=5.0,
&end
#
# Drive to 90deg
etc.

Good luck!
