Does anyone have a torque spec on this banjo bolt?

Font Line Automotive exterior Auto part Parallel


I'm either over-torqued, under-torqued or I damaged my new washers during install because I have the teeniest drop showing up after hours and hours of sitting.

Joints with elastomer seals like O-rings should not be dependent on make up torque but rather smooth support against internal pressure.

Still weeping...not as bad (don't think the drop has hit the floor) but better. I think I deformed the washer when I first installed it (grit vs overtorque). New parts and repeat but 33Nm felt a lot better than what I originally used. Luckily the system takes ATF and not CHF.
