Hello, changing out fuel pump on my JD lx278 mower, 17hp Kawasaki engine- 06/1999 model. Can anyone tell me the recommended torque settings for the 2 bolts. Thank you.

The FC540 service manual does not give a specific torque for fuel pump fasteners.

It gives a general bolt torque as follows:

M 5 - 30 in. lb.

M 6 - 50 in. lb.

M 8 - 130 in. lb.
