Note

The length of the torque wrench is measured from the center of the handle to the center of the drive. The length of the adapter is measured from the center of the drive to the center of the wrench.

c. To determine the corrected (scale or dial) reading for this task, use the following formula:

Corrected reading

Length of torque wrench

Required Length of torque wrench +

torque value length of adapter

Corrected reading

Required torque is 270 to 300 in.-lb (30.51 to 33.9 N-m). Length of torque wrench is 22 in. (558.8 mm). Length of adapter is 3 in. (76.2 mm).

= Required torque value

270 in.-lb (30.51 N-m) 270 in.-lb (30.51 N-m) 270 in.-lb (30.51 N-m) 237 in.-lb (26.78 N-m)

Length of torque wrench + _length of adapter_

Length of torque wrench 22 in. (558.8 mm) + 3 in. (76.2 mm)
