You’re Using a Torque Wrench Wrong! Or Are You Using A Torque Wrench Right? MythBusting: The 10 Do’s & Dont’s Of Torque Wrenching

You’re Using a Torque Wrench Wrong! Or Are You Using A Torque Wrench Right? MythBusting: The 10 Do’s & Dont’s Of Torque Wrenching

I’m writing this BEFORE watching the video, because I don’t want to be prejudiced by what the Torque Test Channel is trying to teach us all about using a torque wrench properly. And I’m doing that because I personally think that many many people use them wrong. I see folks using them in ways that I think have to affect the torque readings and in ways I know affect the torque readings because I’ve tested it. Now I’ve never used the sophisticated equipment that the Torque Test Channel uses, but still. So when I saw this video I knew I had to check it out and I had to share it with all of you guys and gals out there who are putting your own engines and such together. Because if you are using newer Torque To Yield fasteners and are building engines, it matters. Hell, if you are using fasteners that are only using a torque value, it matters. Sure, some things matter more than others, but we all know that.

I mean I haven’t used a torque wrench on an intake manifold in decades, but the manufacturers have a torque spec for those. Am I worried about it on the intake bolts of a small block Chevrolet? Nope. But I am on the rod bolts!

Check out the video below and PLEASE leave a comment on whether or not you’ve been using a torque wrench the right way for all these years. Inquiring minds want to know.
