    Lightbulb Torque Wrench Settings / Value Chart

    Thought this may be useful so knocked up a wrench settings chart for the perfectionist

    This is straight out of the manual for the stock 26 fuelie, settings may differ with other engines.

    I love snap on tools I have a good 15g's worth at the moment. Always adding to the list. I use them for my day job.

    lol yeah just a bit.

    Halfords and Draper tools all come with lifetime warranty.

    Don't see any difference in quality, it's just the name your paying for

    They may not be the cheapest tools out there, and for what we use them for there are alternatives for most things... BUT Snap-on are the only people I could find that make a plain ended 3/8" square drive hex bit long enough to check the torque on my head bolts. Yes it was an expensive item, but nobody else makes them - Sealey got close with a ball ended version, but that ain't no good for setting torque accurately with a torque wrench.

    Peace of mind ?

    I'm sure if they didn't need to be torqued up then they wouldn't print them in the SS manual...

    I do it purely for...peace of mind. 50 for a torque wrench is no more expensive than a killswitch, very worthy IMo and I'd like to think that all the top engine builders torque their nuts up
