Measure the minimum necked down-down diameter prior to re-use.
NOTE: Replace when the minimum necked down-down diameter is 8.0 mm or less.

Initial tightening torque 40-50 Nm

Angle of rotation torque 90 -100

If the bolts are replaced/knocked in with a hammer..
Tighten the first time to 60-70 Nm

Angle of rotation torque 90 -100

Do NOT use a torque wrench for Angle of rotation torque = it can/will give a false angle reading..
