Quite possible the worst advise I have ever seen here. We're talking about the fuel cell here.

That is the last thing I would recommend on something so critical as the fuel pump housing bolts.

As posted, there is a guy that was missing two bolts for what ever reason, too loose, too tight, whatever. Now his boat is burned up.

A torque wrench is extremely cheap insurance when compared to the possibilities of what could happen.

"Heavy" beer is for wine drinkers that are too embarrassed to drink wine in front of their buddies. "Light" beer is a drinkin' man's beer!
