T\C bolt torque...

Postby JustJim » Wed Jun 01, 2022 11:55 am

Hello gang-

I'm trying to get my Touch Control back together today. There are three threaded bolt like components (two at the front of the block, and one under the head), which have copper seal washers. I have read here that those are prone to leak if not torqued sufficiently to make the washer seal up tight. I have yet to find a torque spec for these.

I can simply torque them "good and tight" but if someone knows the correct value, I'd appreciate that info.

Thanks as always! :D

I would look up the type and style fastener on an industry standard torque chart. And if they are prone to leak I would go on the high side of that value

Thanks, Clemsonfor-

I've got it all sealed up and am painting it today. Not having an approved torque figure, I ran those "bolts" up in steps with my torque wrench. By about 45 pounds, the bolt heads were no longer rotating. I stopped at 50 foot pounds, and I sure hope that will be sufficient.

I appreciate the help!
