Default GRRRRRR!!!!! I broke my banjo bolt...

Well, the thread title says it all...

I was replacing my clutch slave cylinder and was retorquing the banjo bolt. The directions can be found in a SOA bulletin, and we were discussing why to replace this part here:

http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=985376

So, I set my torque wrench to 28 ft lbs and started turning. It just kept turning and then it started feeling loose. I thought, "oh, that can't be good!"

So I turned it back out and then the head snapped off. At least I got the bolt out easily and didn't have to buy a new slave cylinder, too.

So, my wrench goes down to 25 ft lbs, but apparently it doesn't actually work that far down. It's a big wrench and i was using a 3 inch extension. I know extensions affect the torque amount, but is that what went wrong? Or should I buy a small wrench for small amounts?!?

This is how I feel about that bolt:

I personally do everything by feel; I haven't used a torque wrench in years.

Glad you got the rest of it out.

I do that for the most part, except for head bolts and bolts that hold in fluid. So, this one gets the torque wrench...
