I don't usually pull out the torque wrench for this one but supervette77 is right that you need to snug them evenly. I usually use a nut driver (screwdriver handle on a socket). That's fairly safe. You can crack a quadrajet's body pretty easily with a socket wrench (ask me about the bead of JB Weld running down the front of the one on my big block.) God bless, Sensei
