since search isnt working..

my 1" block has 4 holes tapped for mounting . My old 3/4" block had 6 holes, so I used four to mount the head to the block, and the other 2 just to hold the pump head sections to each other. (the only reason I did it like that
because I had some of the longer bolts layin around)

I'm just wondering, if I'm gonna mount a GF2 head, can I get away with just 2 bolts into the block or should I be going for more?

from what I can tell you could run 6 long bolts through the pump head into the block and everything would be fine once it was all torqued up.

what does everyone else do?

If you are doing some inches and building good pressure...you will more than likely blow a seal with only 2 bolts. At least 4 should be the rule.

wel it has the four to the top left tapped, they are centered over the pressure port, but that lave the whole other side open and I was thinking maybe key problems?

who knows, grade 8 bolts shouldnt let it have any slop anyways.

72 and yes ..i'm sure it could use another batt or two still,also changed coils so that might be a part of it


but i am wondering what is the torque pattern for 4 bolts ..

I'ver been wonder wether to get a #8 or #10 with 72 volts. think a #10 with 'plump' plumbing?
