SORRY about stealing the thread.

This may not have anything to do with torque but what kind of oil and antifreeze should I use LOL.

Just for fun John

Euclid says there are 4 different coating and 3 different threads for the studs and nuts the guy told me the Zinc coated where the cheapest and the worst but they sell a ton of the Zinc because of price.

The Alcoa spec for drops of oil on the first 2 or 3 threads has been around for a long time the problem is they don't make studs and nuts no telling where that came from, it does take away the aspect of using no oil that has been a argument here for years and also about using a impact gun  

There are nuts for Aluminum wheels and steel wheels the wrong nut kills a wheel where it is aluminum or steel  I used the neversieze to keep from peeling the aluminum on the wheel sockets it worked good for me over the years

Well, I guess I've been doing it all wrong my whole life. What else is new. Oiled threads and 1" impact for over 35 years. Never a problem.

All this talk on torque and I was getting ready to put my wheels back on.

So I made myself a little torque multiplier for about $10.00.

Worked great using my 200lb torque wrench to get 600lbs of torque.

Is it possible I saved money today.......Maybe!

Nice job!  Yes, that is a legit way to multiply the measurement of a torque wrench!

Yo Cliff, Uddaman!
A curmudgeon's reputation for malevolence is undeserved. They're neither warped nor evil at heart. They don't hate mankind, just mankind's absurdities. They're just as sensitive and soft-hearted as the next guy, but they hide their vulnerability beneath a crust of misanthropy.

TexasBorderDude,
 How do you get your 400 pounds balanced on the end of that 13.56" wrench? LOL Maybe a picture would explain it! LOL

Ah yes... all those years of practice doing one armed push-ups on the pommel horse leading up to the 1968 Olympics in Mexico City or was it Tujuana?

   Why not use the big air wrench with either a torque stick or torque extension? One of many places that carry them:
