How to use a Mechanical Torque Wrench

A mechanical torque wrench is a must have for any tool box and home garage, not only for your vehicle, but even your bike! Making sure you have the right torque setting on your suspension, engine, and drivetrain components is critical. If you do not use a torque wrench or you use an inferior tool, you're probably not getting the bolts tight enough or overtightening. If you don't tighten the bolt enough you run the risk of the bolt backing out, and if you tighten the bolt too much you run the risk of stretching the bolt, damaging the thread or worse still, snapping a bolt! all of the above cost you time and extra effort, so do it right he first time and grab yourself a quality torque wrench from Repco today. Remember to set your torque wrench back to 0 to maintain the accuracy.
