3. Threaded ring (left) @ 7.4 - check
4. Lock ring @ 118 - check
Problem, when tightening the lock ring properly, the left threaded ring also turns changing the torque reading. Am Did I do something wrong here?
You have to hold the inner part with the 12 MM "Allen" wrench, through the hole in the side of the modified 30 MM socket, to insure it does not turn when tightening the locking ring. Very hard to do without help. I used the screw jack from a Toyota truck, put the allen wrench in place and ran the jack up to just put a little pressure on it, then tightened the lock ring.
