I just replaced the neutral safety switch. Hardest part of the job was getting the cover back on and everything aligned properly and keeping the darn gasket in place (and clean).

I have the bolts snugged down and verified that the new switch works. The old one was intermittent, so hopefully this SOLVES that problem.

I am looking for the proper torque specs for the 11 bolts that hold the cover in place. Since I'm starting with clean mating surfaces and a fresh gasket...I figure I'll give it the best shot at not leaking.

Thanks in advance,

-Tom

Thanks, that could come in handy down the road. But it explicitly states for bolt/nut applications, not tapped holes.

Plus with a gasket involved…I’m guessing that changes things.
