Talk the torque with a Sykes Pickavant Motorq Professional Torque Wrench 3/8in Square Drive

The Sykes Pickavant Torque Wrench is an excellent solution to the torque wrenches often seen in use with professional mechanics, technicians and engine builders. Although it may just look like a big ratchet, the Sykes Pickavant Torque Wrench has a special internal mechanism which is set-up using the collar on the handle of the wrench to apply a specific, pre-determined amount of torque (force) to a nut, bolt or other type of fastener. Once the desired torque level is set, simply use the torque wrench like a normal ratchet until you feel and hear a click from within the internals of your torque wrench.

You might be wondering why such a specific torque setting is required when working on your car, but its really something you shouldn't overlook. Certain driveline components including something as simple as your wheels have recommended torque settings to ensure they remain tight throughout heat cycles, road vibration and other kinds of abuse so you stay safe and intact on the roads. Other instances where torque wrenches are required is when assembling vital engine components such as con-rod bolts, head bolts, water pumps and so forth. Torque settings are required here to ensure that no damage is done to components or the engine block by overtightening and stretching threads or leaving things too loose and causing catastrophic engine failure in the future. Check your manufacturer specifications for exact torque figures when using this tool as all engines and drivelines vary greatly. Keep an eye out for TTY or 'torque to yield' settings too, this requires you to tighten to a specified setting and then add a quarter or half turn for example.
