    Getting ready to adjust my Dyna clutch for the first time.

    Does the clutch lock nut need torqued ?

    I have watched several videos of clutch adjustment. Looks fairly simple. The only question I have is, ... none of them show torquing the lock nut, so I surmise this is not an issue even though the HD manual gives a torque spec.

    I don't know how hard it would be to get a crowsfoot or some sort of torque wrench extender in that area and around the allen socket. ( I am aware of extender recalcs ).

    Appreciate any/all input.

    I welded a 3/4" nut on the top of a deep socket. The T-handle allen wrench goes through the socket to the adjustment screw and the torque wrench with crowsfoot torques the nut when everything is set. Works like a champ and I never have a worry about whether or not I got it tight enough without overdoing it.
