61 BE 948.

I am installing the steel oil line that starts at the oil filter canister mount with a pressure fitting and runs towards the back of the engine block and connecting to it with a banjo union. Anyhoo, the PO ran a hose between these two points and I'm finally getting around to fixing it.

Question - is there a torque setting called out for the banjo fitting, or is it just a matter of tightening 'just enough?'

Thx!

Just snug it up good crushing the copper washers, but don't strip the darn thing.
