Anyone ever measure the torque on this nut after the final process of 60 Degrees after 50nm? Would be interesting to hear what it was, my angle meter may have slipped a few degrees and it could be useful information.

I don't think it moved enough for a re-try but I did accidentally order 2 clutch housing nuts. So should I sweat it?

Yeah I should have marked just in case, it's a tight space doing this on the floor alone. Pretty darn close I'm sure, angle meter did not fall off of there or anything, the position just shifted slightly could not have moved more than 4-5 degrees if at all.

Doubt it could come flying off there over a few degrees as that nut stretches on there. I think 40-50 degrees over 50nm is pretty darn tight.

Figured if I knew the final torque after 60 Degrees it would be easy to double check it.

I'm a bit of a perfectionist, gearbox is going together and back in tomorrow then hope to never see this again for at least 100k.
