So I know we are "supposed" to torque our bands to 10 ft/lbs and until the bolts bend but I am wondering if "over tightening" the bands can also cause issues?
My bands tend to slip a little when at higher temps and my band bolts are very tight.(bolts are very bent) almost to the point where the flanges on the band ends (part the bolt goes through are almost touching together).
Not sure what happens to ceramic and the bands when heated but maybe the over tightening/torqueing can cause problems just like not tightening enough does???
Anyway's... I have a torque wrench for my next assembly:)
What you think, I can't figure it out???
Hows ya gettin' on, me ol ****?
