Just a note. We used these a lot when I was in the Air Force. You will not get the proper torque when you use these adapters. I don't remember the formula, but you have less torque than what you think you have when you use the adapter. Probably not a lot different with such a short adapter, but it will be different.

Thanks for the heads-up, Joe.

I kept the adapter at a 90-degree angle to the torque wrench handle: it is my understanding from this board and elsewhere that this makes a correction unnecessary, as the "effective" length of the torque wrench is almost the same.

(I snugged all of the nuts down first, then torqued to 40, then 60, then 70, all in the correct sequence per the Shop Manual.)
