Nah I grab the 18 inch plus extension instead. or 2 footerIt only rubs the car/fender if you dont use a deep socket
Thank you As I made my brake vid... what I like doing helping out tLolAnother great video, thanks.
My new wheels came with new 12 pt lug nuts and a really nice 12pt deep socket that gives plenty of fender clearance. It's always good to hear that click/beep verifying the proper amount of torque.?
What is up with the smilies????.......I can see the bottom half of one and the top half of the one directly below.?
On my Job we are told to mark it if torqued or not, and I till you don't look up its not toqued, run.hahaha.
Yeah okay. Maybe on your own car, but cold day in hell I send customers stuff out without torquing.
Yes Have you yet to see me replace a ripped aluminum rim? they should keep to the topic this is not Harvard or Yale just some Grease monkey shopIt doesn't unfortunately. Fishy showed in the video that someone can torque it properly without a torque wrench. In the context of what we were talking about, it doesn't.
You, yourself even said, "maybe on your own car." Which is what we were talking about.
Kloker No pun intended, I took the time to make a 1 min video and take all who posted to me what I never used and simulated to a video,I watched the video. No offense or insult intended, but the truth is, that is a terrible video - it's riddled with incorrect methods and bad information. It's a how-not-to rather than a how-to. First, you never use a torque wrench in that manner. Use your shortest extension to provide adequate clearance. Second, you never, ever use a torque wrench to loosen a bolt - it's a nice, quick way to throw its calibration completely off, after which it's a useless tool unless recalibrated. Third, when you showed hand-tightening with the large 4-way, then checked with the torque wrench, you did not show that you had tightened it accurately, Instead you showed that you had overtightened it. The immediate click demonstrated that fact. Fourth, that method is a great way to snap off a lug bolt or destroy a wheel, as most of the time damage of that kind cannot be repaired. Alloy wheels can easily be cracked or deformed at the holes. leaving them ruined, and you just showed everyone how to do just that. The entire video is horribly wrong information and bad advice, and is a dangerous disservice to the public. People unfamiliar with the process are not going to have a "feel" for how tight to tighten the bolts. In the hands of someone who actually takes it at face value, this video could result in wheel or lug failure and a terrible crash. Leaving you liable in a civil lawsuit, and responsible for damage to property or persons, or death. Possibly even criminal liability too.
I would highly recommend you take this video down immediately before it gets someone injured or killed, or, at the very least, their wheel or even the whole vehicle damaged or destroyed. Hopefully most people would have the common sense not to follow these instructions, but there are many out there who won't know enough to recognize it for what it is which makes it dangerous.
It may sound extreme to some, but if you disagree with my assessment, I submit that you are part of the problem rather than the solution. I have reported it to YouTube as dangerous. I have also reported it to moderators here.
no sweat. glad something pos was said lol.Hey Mr. Fish, keep on keepin' on with the videos.
