  2. If those nuts have been taken off at some time you may need to replace the coppers or anneal them.
    As far as torque, if you see no specs I'd be inclined to torque them as to what other bolts/nuts of the same diameter call for......or just snug them down, run and revisit.

    I have not removed them. I tore the top end apart but not the bottom. Thanks for the reply. I will tourqe to what others of the same size are. Just wondering where they lead too as well. Guess if I remove to replace the washers I my oil is going to come out.
