    150lbs. Purely guessing, off torquing various tractor PTO implements. They are usually grade 8 though.

    Was thinking around there...Just concerned about the aluminum flange...wanna stay close because of thin gasket and about 40 psi water...Water is a precious commodity here in Southern Idaho...Leaks/wasted water are my nemisis...

    Does the flange joint use gaskets?
    Use good water-compatible gasket sealer either way. Probably a specialty sealer for this?
    Good on ya for saving that precious H2O!
