The torque spec for this is "TFAR" - That feels about right.

Please don't confuse this with "OSTWTF" - Oh shit, that was too far!

Seriously though, touching + about 1/8 to 1/6 of a turn.

Tfar - best measuring definition yet. The lesson in how tight is TOO ^&%#@&!! TIGHT is when you do your first oil change after the neanderthal moron at jiffy lube tightened the drain plug to about 900 ft. lbs.

Good point.

Since I never remember to have a new one available I just completely clean the old washer, lay a small sheet of sandpaper on the bench and sand both sides to remove any scoring.
