Default 110 to 600 ft-lbs Torque Wrench

Just ordered a Torque Wrench, extensions, and impact sockets; all 3/4 drive.

All for the love of a Bluebird.

Getting new shoes and don't trust the big guns at the tire shop.

Won't take long to blow the annual Bluebird budget this year.

Ernie, I'm in the same boat. I'll supervise and ask them to use my torque wrench. They do good work, but the owner thinks his impact gun is ok. He understands my concern and allows me to supervise. It's all good.

Don't forget to retorque after 1000 miles or so. I went through all the lugs on my coach when I got it home after purchasing it. There were lugs on every wheel that went tighter, including 7 of 10 on the left front.


The PO put 8 new Michelins on the coach in the year he owned it before I got it; that meant that all 8 wheels were off, and that means 80 lugs to check (inner and outer on drive axle).
