Re: Lucas Caliper Torque Settings
Yes any of that will cause higher friction which will affect the torque.
Also the way the torque wrench is used can be a factor, if it isn't turned smoothly when tightening it will give a false reading.
As you say with either method all you are doing is stretching the bolt to a predetermined point but angle tightening is a bit more precise.
