    Is there a torque setting for the sump plate bolts for a T150 ? I’m reluctant to over tighten them in case a thread strips

    As far as i know there isn’t one, but i’m sure there will be some one out there who will come up with a setting for you. After all they’re only 1/4″ studs  (bolts on my bike) , so you shouldn’t hang on the spanner like a monkey ! Also don’t use a 1/2″ socket set, i just use a small spanner to do them up.

    I’ve tightened them up gently with 3/8” drive socket. I couldn’t get a spanner on them with exhausts in place. They’re bolts on my bike which is a 1969 model.Anyway I then checked with a torque wrench and it’s 4 ft lb so I expect that’s not very tight, if it doesn’t weep oil that’ll do me.

    The 1/4 rocker box bolts , same size and thread are 6 ftlbs. You could go with that, I just tighten without using a torque wrench and never had a problem.

    Thanks Angus, I was going to go for  6ftlb but as it’s 2 gaskets there’s more to squash I’ll see what happens with 4 ftlbs and if it weeps I’ll go to 6. I have to admit I’ve being doing this for years  and never bothered torquing the sump bolts. Might be getting obsessive in old age….
