This appendix lists standard torque values, as shown in Table H-1, and provides general information for
applying torque. Special torque values are indicated in the maintenance procedures for applicable
a. Always use the torque values listed below when the maintenance procedure does not give a specific
b. Unless otherwise specified, standard torque tolerance shall be +10%.
c. Torque values are based on clean, dry threads. Reduce torque by 10% when engine oil is used as a
d. Reduce torque by 20% if new plated capscrews are used.
e. Capscrews threaded into aluminum may require reductions in torque of 30% or more of Grade 5
capscrew torque. Capscrews threaded into aluminum must also attain two capscrew diameters of thread
