If I were you, I would test whatever torque wrench you decide to use. The only bolts that I have stripped in my car hobby work have been done with a torque wrench. I'm not sure how you strip a 1 inch bolt but I'm pretty sure that it would be done with a torque multiplier and these would be bolts that you really don't want to strip.

A 350 test would be accomplished by hanging your mother-in-law one foot from the bolt (axis of rotation) or you could use a 175 lb person 2 feet from the bolt or do the math for whatever weight and breaker bar that you have using a fixed test bolt.

Just kidding about the mother-in-law BTW, mine is a wonderful woman and very svelte.

I guess I will be needing to look at my new old boats smile as well. Hope is not got one. Nice to know there is a need to look though.
