What's the proper torque for the carb mounting nuts? It has a spacer, if that makes a difference.

Just snug. I never use a torque wrench there, but I make sure to use a criscross pattern. If I had to guess, 10 lbs/ft.

Agreed. I'd say 10-12, certainly no more

Thanks.

I use the criscross method - back to front, back to front. I may have over torqued them before. There was a small leak out the back. The top of the intake was discolored.
