torqueing a flywheel

Recommended Posts

A guy on here said to tighten the nut with a impact gun to seat the flywheel and then back the nut off and then torque it with a torque wrench.

I could see doing that like on a wheel bearing of a car but that doesnt sound right on a flywheel,why wouldn't you just leave the nut as tight as you thightend with the impact its not like you are going to burn up a bearing.

I think I am just going to tighten mine with a torque wrench and not seat it

with an impact gun.Is that right or wrong? :banghead:

I'm probably the one who suggested that, because that's how I do it.

I agree that if you torque the nut it will seat. I just do that so it will seat,

and then I torque it. I'm a little anal when it comes to stuff like that

and it gives me peace of mind that I'm getting an accurate torque reading.

you would be fine useing the torque wrench, if honda wanted you to use an impact gun they would have told you too in the book

I however use the impact gun only, some time check the torque after to make sure gun is still good.

Yeah that happened when pulling the flywheel off. It popped off with so much force that it hit my thread on tip protector fracturing the crank.
