OK guys I got a new torque wrench in the mail - my old needle and dial just does not cut it.
However to teach this old dog new tricks I need data and advice...

its a 3/8" inch/pound (does metric too with conversion).

what kind of torque should I be applying to:

strut bolts ___

wing root bolts ___

spark plugs (185) ___

prop bolts!!! (P-Tips/ wood/ 4 hole)___

head bolts 185 ___

exhaust manifold bolts 185___

the thumbnail will not expand in here BTW I presume that is a page from the manual, which I will check.

I was told I should write Prince props about their torque specs.

As for the ny-lock nuts on struts etc. I was told told to just snug them and not compress tubes
