TORQUE LIMIT TABLES
THIS WORK PACKAGE COVERS:
Special torque limits (Table 1), standard screw and nut torque limits (Table 2), standard pipe
plug thread torque limits (Table 3), and stud torque limits for assembly in aluminum (Table 4)
AVDS-1790-2 series engines require special and standard torque limits for fasteners, studs,
and pipe plugs. This work package provides special and standard torque limits for the
convenience of the maintainer.
Become familiar with this work package and keep it as a handy
reference. First check Table 1, Special Torque Limits, for items that
are specific to a particular engine part. The special torque list is in
alphabetical order for ease of use.
If the part that needs to be tightened is not listed in Table 1, use the
Standard Torque Tables (Tables 2-4) in this work package.
All torque values Special and Standard are with lubrication unless
otherwise specified. Torque values for dry fasteners would be
different. Pay attention to lubrication notes.
1. Lubricate nut washer face and threads with Lubriplate (item 23, WP 0173).
2. Lubricate tapped hole with Lubriplate.
3. On assemblies subjected to wire or cotter pin alignment, set torque wrench to low limit and
torque nut using Lubriplate. To facilitate alignment, it is permissible to tighten nut to first
hole beyond this torque.
4. Lubricate all adapter-to-fitting threads and contact surfaces with MIL-L-45199 engine oil
(item 21, WP 0173).
