Old post, I know...

So I'm installing a pair of JD traction bars and ran a search for the torque value for the axle U-bolt nuts. I found it (76 ft-lbs), but had another question:

WTF is German torque?!?!?


I'm half German so I should already know this...

Ha! Now I get it!

I'd rather not strip any threads, so the U-bolts will see the business end of my torque wrench.

Actually Bob, it was in one of your posts in a different thread that I found the 76 ft-lbs. So thanks for the info, and thanks for the clarification of the international torque application!
