Torquing the plunger knife nuts

259 Views 11 Replies 7 Participants Last post by  slowzuki
According to my manual, the plunger knife should be torqued to 98 -133 Nm at the three mounting points. However, I can’t see how a torque wrench would fit to torque the uppermost nut to the spec.

Am I missing something? Any tips greatly appreciated.

Torque values on old reused bolts a crap shoot anyways.
Yup did bolt clamping design in school, even high tolerance bolts, lubricated etc, very tough. The long bolts and stretch bolts had a better chance of hitting a target value at least.
