Default Torque wrench?

Just finished installing the Cobb Stage 1 drivetrain kit (short shifter, shift bushing, tranny mount) - took me six hours (don't ask), but they're in . . .

Anyway, is there anyone who can lend me a torque wrench? I want to check the torque on those bolts . . . oh yeah, I also need to know what the torque spec is on the tranny mount bolts!

Thanks!

Yah, I saw that sale last week. I think it's a Christmas sale, so it still might be on.

Just be careful though. Last time I checked, the "cheaper" 3/4" torque wrench @ Crappy Tire measured torque in inch-lbs, and not ft-lbs.

I ended up going to Home Depot and picking up a torque wrench there for like $90 or something like that.

It's a good investment to buy your own torque wrench if you plan on changing your own wheels and stuff!

LaterZ!

Sometime the inch pound torque wrench is enough. It all depends on what you are using it for.. just remember 12 inch is equal to 1 foot.

I have had a Craftsmen for 10 years now and it works great but unfortunately mine is in inch/pounds newtons/meters.

You can get a 3/8 0-75ft-lb for $23 or a 1/2 0-150 ft-lb for $25.

Any idea if these cheaper Craftsman wrenches are any good? I can't imagine that you need to be much more accurate than +- 1 or 2 lb ft, anyway.

Last time I stopped by Sears the only ones I saw were $80 and up . . .

I prefer the kind that clicks when your reach the torque limit over that kind where you have to read the scale. You could also try KMS Tools, or Princess Auto. I think my dad got an ITC brand torque wrench (of the more expensive style) from one of those places fairly cheap.
