Customer: replied 1 year ago.
I am still trying to find out about using a torque multiplier enstead of try to pull that much with a 1/2 inch drive breaker bar and cheater pipe I have ask this prior, I am also installing a new crush sleeve. Yhanks in advance.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.
I use a 1/2 inch torque wrench. I have no used a Torque Multiplier. I gave you the torque spec to what you need to torque the nut down. What else can I do for you?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
The torque spec is what I need. But the tightening of thr pinion nut remains a problem. Can i obtain the desired torque with a 1/2 inch drive breaker bar. My 1/2 inch drive impact wrench will not do the job. this why I was asking about the torque multiplier.Please review my entire message starting yesterday [ncase I have misled you guys, thank You inadvance.
Expert:  Jay replied 1 year ago.
You need to use a 1/2 inch torque wrench to apply the desired torque spec. A Torque multiplier can put it to the desired torque but you have no way of knowing with out the proper spec. A torque wrench will let you know when you have reached the proper torque spec cause you have set it ahead of time. Once you hit the spec torque, the wrench will click or vibrate depending on the type of torque wrench you have.
