Re: Torque wrench

You can a torque wrench from any number of sources, Sears being a good one. However, be aware that whatever torque values you find for your size keels bolts and nuts is for Clean and Lubricated fasteners. Just tightening them as they are, in a generally semi-corrosive environment, where they have likely been untouched for years, will not give you anything like an accurate reading.
