Intimidated by torque....
Muddled through set up today with some assistance and borrowed tools. I borrowed the torque wrench from my car mechanic neighbor - the 10'/lb setting was the lowest any of his wrenches would go. After some back and forth trips because the nuts were 1/2" instead of the 5/16" and we needed a small socket to fit into the tight area. Whew... Then the directions wanted to tighten the clinch bolts to 5'/lb. His tools don't go that low. The torque wrenches I found in town were $200 or looked like crap. So I tightened the bolts quite firmly but not as tight as I could possibly get them. Do you think I am okay? Or do I have to chase down another wrench? Thanks!
