In an earlier thead (can't find) there was a discussion on how much to tighten the attachment bolts on the AC's. I took off the bottom shroud on our AC's and the bolts were pretty loose. Recalling someone said not to overtighten to avoid compressing the foam gasket I only tightened by about 2 turns or so. How tight should these bolts be?

Sixpack98.....If you reach up into the unit you can feel the foam seal. You should tighten the bolts until you feel it START to compress. Do this at all four bolts.

Don and Dale,
Thanks, that's what I need to know. Looked in the Penguin book but guess I overlooked it which is not unusual.
