Clutch Plate Jamb Nut

The service manual says torque to 120 in-lbs, I set it at 100 in-lbs, didn't notice there wasn't a low and high torque. Think it will be OK or should I torque it again, meaning taking everything off again.

If you're referring to the jam nut for the clutch basket adjusting Allen bolt ....it just needs to be tightened. Its almost impossible to torque the nut as you need to hold the Allen in the center. 120 inch lbs is 10 ft lbs. There's no given range cause you're not going to successfully torque it with a torque wrench and keep your clutch adjustment. Never ever saw one come loose.

Thanks for the info, what I did was tighten the jam nut while holding the Allen screw, but did torque it with 11/16 deep socket, I don't think the screw would turn if any after first tightening it.

Agreed. But the Allen will move with the nut when turned. A good method it to learn the feel of 10ft lbs so you can duplicate it by hand sans torque wrench. Its not a critical fastener so tightening it to a specific torque isn't needed.

The clutch turns in the opposite direction that the jam nut tightens, it ain't going to loosen up !

Agreed, when I put the torque on it, all it did was click, 100 in-lbs. Thanks everyone for the help.
