Default Re: torque for master cylinder bolt

If copper washers are new, they should be annealed soft. If they are old, they need to be annealed. It's best to use new but you can heat them up red hot and quench them in water to anneal them. It doesn't take much torque to get a seal. Hollow banjo bolts break easily so snug them good and see if they leak. Tighten until they don't leak within good reason. That's about the best I can say.
