Carb install-Torque?
Posted by: Murphy ()

Hi All,

Yesterday I removed the right carb and found the insulator was cracked. Evidently I need to go easier. The bolts didn't seem that tight.

Anyway, how much torque can I apply without cracking the spacer?

I looked, found nothing.

I have never torqued one but you will warp the top and crush the gasket before you break a good insulator. They do not need to be very tight at all.
