So I replaced MY Pulley Bolt..and the story behind that

So I finally went and did it....replaced the bolt. Unfortunately, like all of my other work..it is never that simple.

So first, I had to get a torque wrench..so it is off to Harbor Freight. Got a 1/4 inch since I have sockets for that size up to 1/2 inch.

Then I realized that my 14mm is a 3/8 socket. So it is off to Napa to get the adaptor.

On my back again with all of my tools...took the old bolt out.... Want to upload a picture of it but the file is too big..does have a rounded groove in it. Mileage is 47000 plus.

So I put the socket on the adaptor and the torque wrench, which is set at 26 lb/ft. I seated the bolt and then turned it using the socket wrench until it started snugging up.

Then over to the torque wrench and I started applying pressure...and continued to push until the pressure released....because the torque wrench nipple (sic) snapped right off in the adaptor...so now it is back to Harbor freight for both a new torque wrench and to get them to replace the adaptor..wish me luck.

Re: So I replaced MY Pulley Bolt..and the story behind that

Your using the wrong tool for the job. 1/4" inch torque wrench is only good for 200 inch pounds which I believe is 16.6 foot pounds and your trying to tighten to 26 foot pounds. No wonder it snapped off. You need a 3/8 torque wrench.

If it's any consolation, I changed mine last week and had absolutely NO problems. He He.

Re: So I replaced MY Pulley Bolt..and the story behind that

the 1/4 " torque wrench isn't the right tool for this job, you really need a 3/8 torque wrench at least...

I believe the 1/4" maxes out at 200 lb-inch which is about 16 lbft.

I own all three of HF's torque wrenches and like them a lot, they are very accurate and work well too.

I use the 1/4" mainly for settings requiring low torque values, 5-10 lbs ft

to convert lb-in to lb-ft, divide by 12 and to convert lb-ft to lb-in multiply by 12.

How do you know a torque wrench is accurate?

An expert = ex is a has been and a spurt is a drip under pressure.

Good question. They should be sent for calibratation from time to time if absolute accuracy is important but I suppose you could compare them to others for a rough idea. All my new torque wrenches (Gearwrench) came with a certificate showing the tested accuracy to indicated.

Re: So I replaced MY Pulley Bolt..and the story behind that

While using my torque wrench I always tighten the bolt just a little less than specs. If specs call 16 ft/lbs I tighten until 15. I've heard of too many guys stripping threads when tightening to specs. And, I've never had a bolt come loose

there are places that can test it for you, and there are plenty of DIY test methods you can find online.
there are also a few gadgets you can use like this one:

Re: So I replaced MY Pulley Bolt..and the story behind that

Well at least you guys have the time to do it, and patience. I don't so I have mine done at the shop, and I REALLY had to explain to them the location of the bolt, they looked it up on the parts the page on there PC, still no joy, I told them to look it up on you tube and look for
Le Dude,s DIY instructions he did that on his cel ph, they dont have access to the internet. Once he did that he found the part on the part, I was only charged $8.00 for labor. Bike has 24 400 miles the older bolt does have some small dents, 2 onb the edge around the top and 2 small dengs on the side.
