    Default Weatherhead Torque Values

    Hello,

    I'm trying to find any torque values for the fuel line attachment into the weatherhead fittings on the fuel selector valve.

    thanks,

    Brad

    Brad,

    This is what it says in the Eaton-Weatherhead Brass fitting catalog. https://www.eaton.com/ecm/groups/pub...t/pll_1015.pdf

    Assembly Instructions:
    1. Cut tubing to desired
    length. Make sure all
    burrs are removed and
    the ends are cut square.
    2. Slide nut on tube.
    Threaded end A of nut
    must face out.
    3. Flare end of tube with a
    45 flaring tool. See page
    23 for flare data.
    a. Measure flare
    diameter.
    b. Examine flare for
    excessive thin out.
    4. Lubricate threads and
    assemble to connector body. Nut should be
    turned hand tight.
    5. Tighten assembly with a
    wrench until a solid feeling is encountered. From
    that point, apply a onesixth turn.
    Note:
    Do not over-torque as it may
    damage the connector or
    split the tubing at the flare.
