02 chevy 4x4 1500 auto transfer case

was trying to tighten detent bolt on the bottom of transfer case , it had a small leak , snapped it off , it is made of alumi , my question is when i put the new bolt in with a new oring and the old spring and plastic tip do i just tighten this thing back up to the oring and just snug it up a bit , i did;nt move truck or start it since this bolt broke , so i should be good to go just putting it back in , or is there a adjustment to these things , , i circled the bolt i'm talking about , it on the left side half way down , thanks in advance

That shift pin detent bolt gets 13 ft lbs (not very much) if you don't gave a torque wrench that goes that low at least you know this much or maybe you can get your hands on one.All adjustment so to speak is in the spring.
Good Luck
