Re: Lucas Caliper Torque Settings
The Laguna's slide pin bolts are a 7mm allen key bolt, not sure if your is the same.
To be honest with you I'm not a torque wrench type of bloke
I tighten things using feel and common sense, been doing it that way for years and I've never had a problem.
The only time I use a torque wrench is for cylinder heads etc.
You had me all impressed there for a minute TTT.
Then you had to admit to using that feels about right
BTW, it would be a major clear out in my garage if ever I had to find my torque wrench
I was looking for a torque wrench (lost my old one or it was nicked), i agree with you TTT i have never used a torque wrench other than for a head gasket but, i need a new one & wondered if anybody could recommend
a decent one for about £25. Cheers.
PS. To cover the settings in the Haynes i need one that covers 8Nm - 280Nm
Think i may need 2 wrenches then
