42re Band adjustment alternative...

I know this question will horrify the purists, but instead of spending $ on a torque wrench in inch/lbs, why not loosen the lock-nut and just move in the direction you need? Maybe 1/2 turn at a time?

My other question is, if you have a sluggish 1-2 shift and you believe it to be the band, do you loosen, or tighten the front band?

THIS IS WHY I HATE AUTOMATICS

The torque wrench is required. Its the only way to set the zero point for the application of the bands.

'97 zj 5.2, some stuff, some other suff, and some things that even work sometimes.

congers, you can score a cheap 0-60 in/lb torque wrench on ebay for $40 shipped. I just bought a Park TW-1 the other day.

Rat.. will a 0-60 range TW work on adjusting bands?

If you are working on your own stuff a torque wrench will SAVE you money in jobs done right the first time and not breaking things.

THIS IS WHY I HATE TIRE SHOPS AND IMPACT GUNS....

an inch-lbs torque wrench for ~ $60 or a transmission rebuild for ~$2000? Tough choice.
