Checking Preload

Posted on 18 February 2016

Need to check the starting preload of a gearbox or differential?

TWCS recommends that this critical application is best performed with a digital, dial or beam style wrench that is within calibration standards. Out of calibration torque wrenches can cause numerous problems, including premature bearing failure.  Although these wrenches are generally more expensive, they provide a definitive reading, taking the guess work out of the job and ensuring a high level of repair.
