Yeah, I wouldn't be too concerned about causing a reconfiguration of the atoms that make up the fuel tank. Hey, it's only got 200 lbs of highly volitile fuel in it...
Seriously, others have done it. It should be fine.

I had difficulty finding an inch-pound beam style torque wrench. Eventually snagged one from a SnapOn truck while at a friend's shop.
Should come in handy if I ever set up gears again or need to wrench on a NASA approved bicycle at some point...

For anyone else following along, those beam type in-lb torque wrenches are easy to find at Amazon. I paid about $35. They're 1/4 drive, so you'll likely need some step-up adapters to get to 1/2 drive

Thanks for the heads-up.
I hadn't checked in a while, all the 1/4" options were "not available" last I'd looked. Now there's several options.
The Performance Tool version is 0-60in.lbs. and has a nicer pointer which is what you buy the tool for -to read it- so I'm going with that even though it's $37 vs $23. A have an adapter for both 1-4>3/8 and 1/4>1/2 so I'm good to go. I don't think I've ever used the 1/4>1/2 before?

Shackles and D-rings: different things!
