Post Re: Engine Oil Level Too High
I've always assumed valve covers presented an unusual fastening challenge because the gaskets were easy to crush and thus deform the covers causing leaks.

30nm equals 22.13 ft. lbs according to a conversion table. I see no reason to recommend otherwise. But you should do as you see fit. Glad your problem has been resolved.

We'll see how it goes, we can always tighten it and have more new gaskets if needed. We had two concerns.

The new OEM pump from SAV was slightly convex, i.e. rocked slightly side to side on the base. We figured that was because the bolt tightening pulls the ears down.

The old NAPA pump that the previous Owner put on and hasn't been touched since was actually concave a little at the base, i.e. bolt ears pulled down too much so that there was a bow up in the middle. And the nuts didn't feel too tight when we took them off.

The area of the gasket compared to the single bolt that applies pressure makes the likelyhood of "crushing" the gasket pretty remote; I am more worried about cracking the valve cover because the bolt's point of pressure has to be cantilevered over to the sides where the gasket is located.

My feeling is that the convexity is not intentional; most "flat" parts are intended to be flat. The ears just get held tightly to the block by the compression of the bolts; the force is straight down to clamp the pump to the block (and seal the gaskets). 30Nm equals 22 foot*pounds of torque, and that seems about right from my experience and "feel".

Heading back to the Pinz today. I think I'll go ahead and torque to 30 Nm as you've suggested.

We successfully completed the carburetor rebuild today and it turned out perfectly. Float levels perfect, synchronized both were 10, ran very smooth and no exhaust smoke or smell. And we replaced the leaking fuel pump with an OEM fuel pump from SAV.

So tomorrow I'll change the oil again, and we should have no more fuel in the oil.

Thanks for everyone's help on this.

Took an extended trip in the Pinz, oil level is normal and hasn't increased, no fuel smell in the oil. We had trouble with the new OEM SAV fuel pump providing fuel, and put the same M60175 fuel pump back on, so it wasn't the problem, it was the choke being set at 1/2 on all the time and the carburetors running way to rich.
