AC System Fitting Torque
My AC system sprung a leak in the hose going from the compressor to
the condensor at the compressor end. New hose is in transit as we
speak. I also have all new sealing rings on order which I will replace
after I get the system evacuated.
My question is how tightly should I torque the fittings? Can't do
it with a torque wrench (at least not mine) so should I just torque
to a "resonable" level?
TIA as always,

P.S. Put a new 7-blade fan unit in. Man is that thing quiet:) Thought
it was the injector cooling fan at first.
P.P.S. Put new injectors in. Easy starting and significantly smoother
