You should wait for a qualified mechanic to respond - but absent that, consider this from a back-yard one: I distorted and ruined a banjo bolt by over torquing. They are delicate due to the bore through the center and the holes in the sides of the shaft. Since ham-handing one, I don't put more than about 10 ft-lbs, which is about what a small crescent wrench can due in my right hand without really putting any mmmph into it.
See - not a professional assessment, but something to go by anyway in case you're in a pinch.
