    So another installment of "I wish it was a ZF"...

    I bought the fittings for the 4r100 to convert to 3/8 lines (two of the front fitting) . I made spacers to seal the fittings to the case instead of buying 2 bypass delete kits at $50/ea, if you see my other posts you'll know this has been an adventure with nothing being the "same as" everyone else's e4od.. I am planning to use copper sealing washers on both sides of the spacers for sealing them up, did a search for torque specs and just found a crap load of "scientific" equations that are all french to me (not the good kind either). Any of you wizards out there have a plain english way of figuring out what torque limit I should adhere to?? The washers are .530 ID, .810 OD .006 T. I don't want to over do it on them but I also don't want them to leak. Gotta finish this thing this weekend, the jeep i borrowed has developed a coolant leak so now I have to fix it too..
