Torque wrench's are great. Till you come home and your son is undoing his rear wheel nut with it. 😭

Just make sure you have a 3 foot breaker bar and a length of scaffold tube to tighten the camshaft bolts. Don't want them coming loose.

I replaced my re-chromed front forks today, having previously stripped them and replaced the seals following them being checked by a local triumph dealer.

I have 2 torque wrenches one max's at 15 Nm and the other starts at 25Nm, I needed 20Nm.

I also know having stripped them twice the feel of undoing them was different, Triumphs rebuild where much tighter.
So I phoned my friend with all the tools and told him it was time for a best guess, predictably he turned up (he hates my crude hap hazard methods) with a suitable torque wrench late in the rebuild, so I had already guessed again.

3 out of 8 hex bolts needed 1/8 of a turn the rest seemed spot on.

An engineer once told me tools are the length they are because you should not need any more force to do them up :wink: .
