hey people,

ive spec'd up my bolts to be the 7/16" to be torqued at 43lbft.

does that sound right?

i hate to sound like a noob but ive read about people over stretching the bolts ad having to get new sets from eagle at 100 bucks a pop and thats something i really dont want to fork out for.

i used a vernier gauge on the thread and it came out spot on for 3/8", the under head length was under the specified at about 1.4" and i didnt have an imperial socket set so i tried an 11mm socket which was a good fit and i worked i out to be 7/16"

cheers for any info.

luke.

Using a stretch gauge on rod bolts is the preferred method...

im pretty sure its 43
ok cheers guys, i just wanted to double check.

i would but i dont have one and ive asked about and none of my mates have one.

i was just going to use the "torque it down a few times" method and leave it at that.

cheers guys.

Yeah, I don't have a stretch gauge either...I just torqued them down, then un-torqued them like three-four times.
