For the life of me, I can not remember what size nuts are on the tensioner and tank. There are a few more. After a nap I might know what they are. lol

Seems the most common mistake we all make during first builds is over tightening.

post lots of pics!

Yes I agree watch the amount of pressure you use when putting on the nuts.Most stock studs & bolts are 10mm and I believe the tensioner bolts are a 14mm.Before you take it for a ride,recheck all of the hardware,head bolts etc. just to be safe.Good luck with your first build!
