I need one that will go to 250 for a flywheel bolt...
you can borrow mine. it's a bit funny tho - the toque is greater than the scale says it is.
Or for $79 you can buy one at Harbor Frieght that goes up to 250 ft-lbs...
I just spent 60 bucks on an air tool, that wouldn't fly with the wife...
Does it go to 250???
yeah. it's a 75 dollar torque wrench too, thus the fact that it's impossible to calibrate properly. i'd say that when the wrench says 200, you're doing 250. it does go up to 250 tho.
May I use it???? I have things falling apart around me as I speak but maybe pick it up thish weekend???
sounds good. i'll shoot you a pm.
Working on air coolers eh?
Yeah the bolt worked it's way lose and all the oil ran outta the engine luckily it was in the driveway when it happened...
FWIW air cooler heads (air-heads?) call that a "Gland Nut" for what ever reason. Have you got one of the flywheel lock tools? They're a bonus to keep you from chasing the engine all over the garage floor.
I tighten those by locking the flywheel w/ said tool and standing on the end of my 2 foot Snap-On breaker bar until it stops moving. Then I give it a little bounce. I weigh ~180-190lbs. Ain't broke one yet.
Do you use thread locker????
Hope the wobbly didn't hurt the mating surfaces or shear the dowel pins.
Everything looked fine...
