[DML] Re: angle drive replacement question



Owen ,

I think it's about 200 ft pounds. Either way, if you don't have a torque wrench to measure 
it. Just tighten it as tight as you can without a cheater bar. It will be plenty tight for all 
practical purposes.

from DMCH with the angle drive says "as tight as possible".  I'm working with a 32mm 
socket and an 18-inch ratchet to turn it.  I can put a cheater bar on it if I need to, but it's 
really not clear how tight is tight enough.
