Probably about that. I have always tightened them 'pretty snug' - go by feel of the shims deforming a little. Never torqued them.

What Willys said...plus they are just like any other type fitting in that if you overtighten them they will sometimes leak.

bolt torque

If i don't know I check the reference tables in one of the 100 repair manuals in the shop.. they have a list of bolt sizes and recommended torque for each sige and grade of bolt.

Yes...but that is for standard type bolts......a banjo fittings bolt is not standard, plus the fact that it compresses two copper or aluminum washers against a brass housing....well you can see that you do not want a lot of torque, just good and snug will do.

On a GM metric caliper the torque spec is 32 ft. lbs. for the banjo bolt.

He doesn't have 2 rotten teeth left, look like he is missing a few key chromosomes, sit on the front porch and play 'Dueling Banjos' when any strangers walk by does he?

he is a good guy

He had the most points scored at that time by a high school basket ball player... he had a full ride college scholarship for football and basketball ...uncle sam had other plans for him ...The US army put him in the radioactive zone right after we dropped the bomb on japan. HE was a contractor in CAlif and the gas company turned on the gas in a new home his crew had just finished. when he opened the door and walked into the living room the house exploded and blew him right thru the front picture window. one year in the hospital . today he has lost most of his eyesight and hearing. has an appartment a block from the VA hospitay. says he can walk there faster than what it takes to get an ambulance. he still can play a mean banjo with his remaining 3 good fingers. not enough good fingers to play a piano or pick a guitar any more

Wow! Sorry about the joke, I thought you were kidding. If it weren't for his bad luck, your brother would have no luck at all.
