    Default Suction housing bolt torquing

    This evening as I was installing my Berk, my torque wrench broke. My original plan was to torque to 25lbs. I had to resort to guessing at the torque with a regular ratchet. I'd have to say that there on there pretty tight. Probably beyond 25 lbs. shoul I get a new torque wrench and do the job over again or should I leave it as is. What are the implications if the bolts are too tight?

    If it didnt break the suction housing, then I am sure you are ok!

    Are you talking about the suction to intake bolts? If so 25 sounds too tight to me, for some reason i'm remembering 17 but I could be wrong. You really don't need to torque those, it's a good idea to just get them all the same but it wont hurt doing them by hand. Just try to get them all close.

    just torqued mine to 25ft lbs. Felt like 1/4 turn before snapping off so must be right

    Eddie ,Likley not telling you anything you may not know however in general terms Bolt, Nut and fastener tightening is divided up and specified by bolt type (composition) style,application , size, thread type , lubricated or not etc, you can seldom go wrong in a pinch (sans an actual mfg spec) by refering to the tables available on the net Tom

    as usual Tom is 100% on this one. if its not specified in a manual, look it up on a universal torque chart.
