Pump housing screw torque ??
Manual says 12 and 23... Seems light. I lost my torque wrench and had to get another one. I think I had it at 30 but am leaning toward 40.
What do yall use as safe torque ? I'm in the low 70's on speed.
Read this but it doesn't say

seems like it was in the 22-24 range for the newer ski's. Snug then Torque them in an X pattern. I noticed when I was doing alignment it makes a difference...small amount off makes a big difference at the other end of the shaft.

Yea only 24lbs....no, it's not a bunch of torque but the pump isn't subjected to anything that would require it to have a high torque. Stick with proper torque specs... That way, you'll never need to buy a tap and die set! Too much of a good thing is too much.

Pump bolts don't shake loose. A little blue thread loc, proper torque and done. Not smart to over torque stuff just to satisfy paranoia. Let the engineers create these machines and tell us (via manual) what all the torques should be
I haven't snapped bolts from over torquing anything since I was a pre teen
