This appendix lists standard torque values, as shown in Table D-1, and provides general information for applying
torque. Special torque values and tightening sequences are Indicated in the maintenance procedures for applicable
Always use the torque values listed in Table D-1 when the maintenance procedure does not give a specific
Unless otherwise Indicated, standard torque tolerance shall be t 10%.
Torque values listed are based on clean, dry threads. Reduce torque by 10% when engine oil is used as a
lubricant. Reduce torque by 20% if new plated capscrews are used.
Capscrews threaded Into aluminum may require reductions In torque of 30% or more of Grade 5 capscrews
torque. Capscrew threaded Into aluminum must also attain two capscrew diameters of thread engagement.
