seriously? the range of correct tightness is from hand tight- to use an IMPACT?????

crazy.

i have had to apply like 150 or more foot pounds to a lug-nut to get it off on my car from some jackamo who put it on with however many pounds the gun puts out. just blows the mind.

The tool you are looking for is a torque wrench, when people say Torque it down or "torque it to spec" they don't mean as tight as you can go until you dot your underpants with a spec of pee.

they mean clutch nut 21-28ft/lbs then the wrench clicks and you double check and you take out the piston stop. Same with the Flywheel, and the engine studs, and the exhaust nuts........

the repair manual for everything usually has the specifications for all fasteners tightness.
