Torque wrench question
I am preparing to check swingarm pivot bolt torque. Reviewing the shop manual Section 14 it states "when using the lock nut wrench, use a deflecting beam type torque wrench 20 inches long". Got me to wondering:
1. Why wouldn't ANY type torque wrench be ok for this procedure? Is it something to do with using the lock nut wrench?
2. Why 20" specified? i.e. wouldn't a SHORTER or LONGER wrench get the job done properly?
