magnet bolts to flywheel ??? Not the brass screws
Thanks, George n L.A.
Martynn Vowell is burning the midnight oil when it's cool and not 90 in his garage.
Use a 3/8" ratchet and tighten them. There is no torque spec. Torque wrenches were not used on Model Ts. You don't need one.
Question, how do you torque wood screws?
Torquing wood screws; I have the adapters to put any screwdriver bit into my torque wrench
If six were nine, on a scale of 1 to 10, with three being the highest, how would the
torque specs rate on a perfect plumb, set on a level plane ?
Here's a previous discussion on the magnet bolt torque topic:
The suggestions were in the 25-35 ft-lbs range.
George -- see attached below. If the resolution isn't clear enough, p.m. me and I'll email it to you. There's no shame in using a chart. A savvy craftsman has knowledge on his side:
The problem with any of those torque charts is that they do not apply to a Model T Ford. If you were knowledgeable you would know that the bolts on Model T's are not built to SAE specs.
A savvy craftsman can do a job the right way. Read the Ford manual on your Model T - use the directions contained there and you won't have a lot of trouble.
The difference here is that I give the o.p. the benefit of the doubt that he'll be able to combine his experience with knowledge to tailor a suitable outcome for the situation he has before him. I don't often suffer trouble of my own making here in my shop. Your mileage may vary.
