Question: Visible glass cylinder tightening smokey1 32 minutes ago Originally gas pump glass cylinders were glued/bonded into place using a white lead based paste mixture providing a strong leak proof bond between cast iron pump castings and glass itself while supporting steel rods surrounding the assembly providing an even clamping pressure on assembly.

With vintage concrete mix removed & glass cylinder cleaned(w/solid crack-free top/bottom edge) using new cork gaskets between glass/castings or glass-gasket-steel band-gasket-pump casting, how much tightening on supporting steel or brass rod nuts should be applied once final assembly takes place? Tightening in a criss-cross pattern for even pressure.

Before someone says, 'tight enough to compress the new cork gaskets, but loose enough that the glass does not shatter', would be great to hear from restoration members who have practical experience and can share knowledge on the subject after fitting and final tightening these vintage glass cylinders.

Realize there might not be an inch-pound torque wrench specification, but again some practical experience would be very welcome.

Looking to do final assembly and ideally like glass to remain in place when the gas pump is someday transported on its side without disassembling the glass back out of the gas pump if possible.

Thank you in advance
