Good advice.

Remember also that bolts should be lightly lubricated with thin machine oil (such as 3in1) or the torque applied will not translate fully into clamping force.

This is because on a dry bolt some of the torque is lost in the friction of the thread before it gets to the full clamping load.

PS. Don't forget my Cam TDC tools somestick
