Have just placed new carb assembly in place and securing intake pipes to cylinders. Manual does not give the torque for this. Bolts are 8mm flanged.

Doesnt the manual give you "Standard" torques for a range of bolts and nuts, depending on their size?

The world is not going to finish today, as it is already tomorrow in Australia and New Zealand, and other islands of foreign nations such as Guam and Samoa.
