Default Proper use of steering head wrench with torque wrench

Proper use of steering head wrench with torque wrench
By the way everyone for some of you who may not be aware of this, There is a small issue you need to keep in mind when using this tool with a torque wrench.
  • If you mount the tool on on a torque wrench at a 90 degree angle to the torque wrench . You may set the torque wrench to the exact torque spec.
  • If you mount it at a 45 DEG. angle or straiaght in line. You have to do a small calculation to compansate for the additional length.
  • In otherwords you set your torque wrench at a lower setting to compensate for the added length.
  • Here are two links that will do the calculation for you as well as explain it.
  • The second link actually gives you a pic of the torgue wrench setup. you simply fill in the boxes and it will tell you what set your torque wrench at in order to reach the desired torque.
