Greetings my good fellows

I'm wondering again if there is a good soul, that can tell me the tightening torque of the nut (20) to the pump body.

Best regards to all

Hi Pedrosa,

FWIW, I tend to under-tighten things on pipes and pumps, get the unit operating, then nip them up a little at a time until leaks stop...

+1 for Ed, once you've got a feel for the joint concerned and it won't stop leaking strip it down and rebuild with a hydraulic sealant, Loctite 542 or similar.

Remember spanners are made to a certain length, proportional to their size, this is to help prevent over enthusiastic tightening!

Combination spanners allow the wise engineer (and evil bastards, such as my self) the luxury of clipping two together to double the force in times of dire emergency............

Tighten 'til it strips, weld nut to chassis, peen stud, adjust with angle grinder.

Thanks both

By now I'm just a tire kicker. I mean there will be with all certainty, the right amount of torque, to tighten  this (and all) nut.

I do not want to break any pieces. and I believe that the correct torque is provided by the manufacturer, taking into account the working temperature and expansion.

Can someone give me the scientific value.

Jim Perkins from the UK is an expert in all things Petter and a gentleman as well I have bought parts from him in the past and I read his book on Petter engines.
