This appendix lists standard torque values, as shown in Table G-1, and provides general information for applying torque.
Special torque values are indicated in the maintenance procedures for applicable components.
Always use the torque values listed below when a specific torque value is not available.
Special attention should be observed when using SAE Grades 6,7, and 8 capscrews.
Unless otherwise specified, standard torque tolerance shall be 10%.
Torque values are based on clean, dry threads. Reduce torque by 10% when engine oil is used as a
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 capscrew
torque. Capscrews threaded into aluminum must also attain two capscrew diameters of thread engagement.
