    Do any of you know if a torque wrench will be accurate when using a crowfoot wrench? I was just thinking about the last time I adjusted my clutch and I always feel better if I can follow the torque specs. This is about the only way that I can think of that may work to torque the nut while holding the allen.

    Maybe some of you have a different idea.

    Should be close enough. You are not going to be that far from the drive of the torque wrench.

    When I was in the Navy we used the same set up when installing Vertical launch missles on submarrines. If it is good enough for the navy weapons systems I see no reason not to use the same in everyday life.

    Mount the crows foot at 90 deg. on the tourque wrench. You'll be fine.
