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