thought it was called "VFT"   cheers "very f-ing tight" Laughing  Laughing 

hi LOCKNUT
there is no set torque setting that i know about for them and even in all the manuals and books on them just say " no set order of tightening
1st   do all finger tight 
2nd  tighten them all down 2 flats on nuts ,and 
3rd   repeat as requered

steel nuts in valve area
brass domed in water jacket
and add a little greese to both surfaces to allow for gasket to spread evenly while thightening ,
incase of exsenive pitting corrsion in water system gasket faces and a little gasket compound instead of greese in that area only,
 to make sure of good watertight/sealed joint
thats all the books will tell me

Hi Guys.
Thanks for your replies.I too have checked the manual and the various You tube videos and couldn't find any answers.But following your suggestions I will first set my spanner to FT and tighten the nuts ,then go round again on a setting of VFT!
Kev - thanks for pointing out about the possible pitting in the water system gasket faces- I hadn't thought about that - so nice one!
