07 Norge oil pressure switch torque
« on: March 31, 2023, 01:10:10 PM »
Replacing oil pressure switch on my O7 Norge, old one out, got new one in, but canít find torque value any where, not that Iíd be able to get any torque wrench I have in there, but just wondering before I strip it out how tight should it be? Also since I havenít tightened it yet,  is it recommended to put Teflon tape or anything around the threads, I didnít and it would be a bitch to take it out and get it back in but since Iím doing it, whatís the consensus?Iíll have a beer and change the oil while I wait for an answer. Thanks

Iíve done 2 on my Ď07 and I just nip it up by feel. I have never used tape or sealant.
Never been an issue.

There should be a crush washer on it, snug till pressed on tight, bout like a spark plug.
