My Hanes manual says 52 ft. lbs, then 90 degree angle torque, followed by a second 90 degree angle torque.
I have finished the first 90 degree angle torque and this seems really, REALLY, tight. A few of the bolts even seemed to give way a little toward the end of the 90 degrees.
It seems that if they are to be angle torqued, 52 ft lbs is very tight to start the procedure. The book gives, I believe, 70 nm and 52 ft lbs.
Any comments or information would be appreciated.
Thanks and have a great day,
