    [FONT=Arial Black]Hello there guys and Gals I have a question for you all and believe me it gets tricky... A friend of mine had to make a special Crowsfoot spanner to tighten the base studs on his Panhead Harley. Once he had made it he then proceeded to measure the length of his torque wrench...

    I have just swapped the manual steering box on my 56 chevy with a power steering kit. The nut on the output shaft where the pitman arm fits is supposed to tightened to 225 -250 ft/lbs. My torque wrench only goes upto 175 ft/lbs. Should I spend £100 on another torque wrench I may hardly use again...

    Hi All, I am geting new bolts for my torque converter/flexplate (haven't got the old ones), I have been asked what rating the torque converter it is. All I know is it is a standard one from an '86 Camaro. Can anyone give me the spec on it please? Cheers, Stu.

    I have recently taken the 302 out of my car, as have bought a 460 BBF. The engine and flexplate are gone, but the gearbox, torque converter, prop yoke, and maybe even the prop still exist. The gearbox, I am extremely reluctant to sell, as, I'm sure you are aware, every C4 box now that is...

    Right i know about torque and i know the reactions that come with it, with an engine, but with torque twist, ive noticed some engines will rock the same way as the engines rotation, and the others the opposite way... Ive noticed its supercharged cars alot of the time rocking with the rotation...

    Got a second hand one, came with the mill/box (350/350) and it's been sat in a dry environment for at least 5 years (so, gawd knows how old it is!) Presuming it was a 'good un' from supplier can they still go off the boil? It's the big install before firing up for the first time and I'd be...
