G-1 . SCOPE.
This appendix lists standard torque values, as shown in
Table G-1, and provides general information for applying
torque. Special torque values and tightening sequences
are indicated in the maintenance procedures for applica-
a. Always use the torque values listed in Table G-1
when the maintenance procedure does not give a
specific torque value.
b. Unless otherwise indicated, standard torque toler-
ance shall be ± 10%.
c. Torque values listed are based on clean, dry threads.
Reduce torque by 10% when engine oil is used as a
lubricant. Reduce torque by 20% if new plated caps-
crews are used.
d. Capscrews threaded into aluminum may require re-
ductions in torque of 30% or more of Grade 5 caps-
crews torque. Capscrew threaded into aluminum
must also attain two capscrew diameters of thread
