Carburetor Insulator


Recommended Posts

I pulled the Carburetor Insulator and the bottom bolt had what looked like a white corrosion on it.  I chased the threads on the bolts and in the head but was wondering if I need to use something on the bolts when I put it back on so that wont happen again?

 

Thanks

Thanks, do they torque different with anti-seize on them?

 

Yes. A fastener with anything on the threads is going to torque differently than dry threads. If you are in the habit of putting a torque wrench on everything, you had better be taking that fact into account, or you run a real risk of stripping threads. Not so much fastener threads(that would be an easy fix) but the threads of the part its being screwed into.

 

I suggest you start to develope a "feel" for when tight is tight enough and not rely on a torque wrench, especially for small fasteners.

 

Tho a torque wrench def has its place for certain things. There are formulas and figures to be used for converting to updated torque specs when torquing non-dry fasteners.
