Torque to Yield Fasteners
Hey all, a tech question here. I'm a licensed tech and replacing the clutch on a 2008 Ranger 4x4. After installing the flywheel after machining, I went to install new inverted Torx head torque to yield bolts. While my apprentice was assisting, I followed the fastener specs, performing the first two passes with torque wrenches. Upon the last pass while turning the bolts 90 degrees, my assistant's bar slipped, the flywheel spun, and completely lost track of which were tightened and which were not. I have a truck that needs to be put together, nobody stocks the bolts, and even with an emergency delivery, they're still six hours away. Do any techs out there know what the approximate torque value is after the last 90 degree pass? I don't want to take any chances with a critical fastener and I will suck it up and buy more bolts if I have to, but I'm just curious if anyone has any ideas. Any input is gratefully accepted. Thanks, Ted.
